Your mission, should you choose to accept it...

My desktop computer is somewhat old (in computer years), and all the USB ports are in the back, where they are very, very inaccessible. This is a problem for me and my thumb drives, so I went to Staples (15 miles away, in Sequim) on Monday to look for an extension cable. And I found what I wanted, too. But I let a salesman talk me into a slight upgrade, which was a four-port desktop hub.

What the hell, I thought. I have more than one USB device; this'll come in handy.

It wasn't until I opened it today that I realized that pimple-faced knob goblin had sold me a hub that, in fact, had no extension cable on it at all. Rather than the 6 feet I needed, I'd get about 1 inch. In other words, he had sold me the exact opposite of what I needed.

So I had to drive all the way back to Sequim, and I was so pissed off I didn't even exchange it for the thing I needed. I decided to take my business somewhere else.

However, the problem stands, and I need an extension cable. I can get one cheap on Amazon, but I'd kinda like to get an interesting or fun one if I can. So, if anybody can find a really cool extension cable or USB hub that incorporates the cable, please let me know.

The best one I've found so far is the phone booth from Doctor Who.

I'm also irritated because I've been really tired lately. I've been sleeping about 11 hours a day for the past month and a half and I can't seem to stop. And it's not just dozing or laziness...I'm out cold from about midnight to 11 AM, and I hate it. It's killing my productivity, and waking up pissed off is not a good way to start the day. Advice welcome. And don't tell me to just go to bed earlier, because it doesn't work.
