Just don't have a drink or two when trying to do this I wrecked 2 cable's trying to do it half drunk after my little screw up's i decided just to buy the stupid round cable's.
lol I can barely do steady work when I'm sober much less if I were to get drunk

The worst part about that is i done it on a long weekend, and my ol'lady was severely pissed cause she couldn't get on to play bingo till Tuesday when the comp store opened up So remember children drinking and computer's don't mix

an easier way to make round cables... (as said) u fold the cables into quarters (the long way lol) and use some cable sheething of sort and zip ties!! much happier cables than hacking them with a sharp knife and u get to choose ur color!!!!
