There are times when you really wish certain electronic equipment had their power cords attached to the devices themselves, rather than being unpluggable.  I was just on a web conference with a customer and my foot apparently knocked out the power cord from my router — it took me a few [painful] minutes to figure out what had happened.

By the way, I can’t even count the number of power cords I have for the various electronic equipment I have purchased; I have absolutely no idea to which device they belong.  What are all the advantages, again, of unpluggable power cords?
