TaW: Week 5 – UPS Cable

I’ve a few weeks to make up for due to the madness of the Air Ambulance challenge but here is the belated Thing for week 5, a UPS cable for my PC at work.  I used a cable from one of my colleagues machines to get the pinout at the RJ45 end, cut a spare USB cable and crimped it.

Alas, I didn’t notice that the original cable had 10 pins and RJ45 only has 8…  Fail!  The thing is ultimately useless but a valuable lesson learned.
