Hi Chris,

Thanks for offering help!

On my TODO list are only a couple of ethernet cables that ultimately will
be used as serial cables for the access control stuff.
Also, there is one cable to splice together, which either could be via
soldering and heatshrinkining or by crimping a plug and a connector (are
these available for crimp ? Not sure). I try to be at the space on Monday,
or make a little list of what I need done for you to pick up.

Maybe there is something to be done for the networking stuff, I think
Patrick might know best if there is need for crimping there.
