Thanks guys. Not much happening right now - no KU for some time. I think they're still working on routing the power cable.

The first cable has been routed, now they're working to wire tie the cable to some handrails and plug it in the connector pannel number 1.

Take your time ;) I'm only going to pop out for 10 minutes to watch them pass over me.

The cosmonauts are worried that they're slowly losing the FGB as a translation path with all these cables flailing around.

Ready to take the ethernet cable.

And I'd like to point out that Rob Navias said the ethernet cable is wound on the universal cable holder, while the cable is in fact on its own reel, shown in the second picture.
