What's the problem?

My plan (currently being built) is to give my home a 12VC spine along the middle wall, with ribs to both sides, with fixed cables to all room lights. For plug-in consumers I standardize on BNC connectors, cables with BNC in one end, whatever in the other end. It will mostly be plugs with standard 5.5 mm outer diameter add 2.5 mm inner diameter, but I have a couple devices wanting 2.1 mm diameter, so they need another cable.

I am installing 3-pin BNC sockets in my power rails, having 'declared' that the left connector supplies 12VDC, the right one supplies 5VDC. For now, all my 5VDC consumers use USB charging, from a hub supplied by 12VDC (unless supplied by the 75W AC based charger). I am not certain that I will ever provide any advanced 5VDC supply though my spine/rib network, even if the cabling is there.

Straw Poll

Have you ever taught anyone to code?
"Teaching" can mean from start to finish, or simply just helping someone learning to code work through a coding issue (like helping with homework or being a support tutor)
And how did it go?
