Pilot fish and IT consultant crew arrive to connect up a client’s system after a move to a new office. One tech finds the hub, then goes in search of its power cord. After much looking and discussion, the owner business finally overhears them and says, “Isn’t this it?”

And by golly, it is. Explains fish, “The owner had jammed the small power connector from the transformer into the RJ45 jack on his NIC and expected it to power up his LAN.”
