No more POTS wiring

Well, this evening I decided we were done with POTS wiring in the house. Everywhere CAT-5 wire goes now, it goes to a T568B jack. The whole house is thusly set up for gigabit Ethernet.

We still have a couple of uses for analog phone lines, but they don't need to go over the house wiring.

I went to Fry's and bought a wall mount set of punchdown CAT5 8P8C jacks and just punched down the whole house onto it. We have an 8 port gigabit switch in the front of the garage, and it's all lit up for gigabit now.

So... w00t.
