You know what I found at Meijer today that shocked me? Category 5 and 5e Ethernet patch cables. What's pissed me off is that I needed some ethernet once on a sunday night at like 2am and went to one and couldn't find any, today I was looking for a replacement razor head and stumbled on the CAT 5 by accident.
Arrgh. Well, at least I know where I can get some now. (They're in the aisle with the telephone, speaker, and cable wire, if you're curious)

what's the difference between 5 and 5e?

5e is higher quality and certified to run gigabit ethernet (GigE) over twisted pair (thus you can use the normal ethernet wire instead of fiber for gigE.)

Sure enough. Also, I get 12% off because my mom works there!
