Mainly in the world of computers, a term describing that damn mass of excessively long Cat5, bypass, power, and other miscellaneous cables and crap that simply refuses to be a part of any controlled, regulated, or ordered system of perfect LAN-wide utopianism. Also known to be at the root of many problems that cause mass server down time. "Awww shuzzbutt, Mr. Bojangles tripped over not only the main power cable for our server, but also ALL THREE backup UPS's!"
