    Is it some sort of universally accepted color coding, international so to speak?

    Good question, I'm not sure. But it is a "standard" in the US, and probably other places.

    Well, I discover that there's a thing called the "even count color code" for bundling wire groupings in the TelCom field. So, you collate, group and route telephone cables with these?

    Have you tried their Balkan Mixture? If you have not, send me a PM and I will send you a little. It's a little too Lakeland for me, but you might like that.

    You're welcome. This is what I drink. There are many Asian grocers here, and this is available at all of them. It's probably not a "gourmet" tea, but it's inexpensive, I like it and have been drinking it for years.

    I would say those zip ties are more safety specific than anything else.

    You win! Send me a PM with your address! Yes, these are zip ties for bundling groups of wires... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/25-pair_color_code I think that would have been used to bundle in their color order, to bundle each 25 pairs in order, in a large splice.... So the blue/white, would group the first 25 pairs of all 25 color combinations. Did that make sense...
    Edit:
    I realized what I wrote made no sense.
    There are 25 color codes. In that set, there are 25 wire ties that correspond to the color code. So in a larger cable, with more than 25 pairs, each bundle of 25 pairs, would be wrapped in a ribbon, to indicate each the sequence, when making a big splice, you would use these ties to replace the ribbons that were wrapped around each bundle. The first bundle of 25 pairs, would have a blue and white ribbon, and would get a blue and white zip tie, and so on. Maybe that makes more sense. I'm not in telecom, I just ended up with the set of wire ties....

    It's been a day for Virginias and, surprisingly for me, burleys. Started out with Royal Cajun, then on some errands I impulse-bought some CH and SWRA, as I've been meaning to give those another chance. Had a bowl of each during the afternoon. Now it's time for some Dark Star in the custom cob.

    I have been smoking PA out of my Legends, but while at the shop I picked up a cheap MM Hardwood. I am a novice to say the least, but Middleton Cherry in my MM hardwood is a treat.

    Makes sense now that I know something about it. :) Thanks for the research opportunity.
    Meanwhile back on topic... Smoking Honey Meade in my spool cob. [​IMG]
