I used a bunch of zip ties and tie mounts under my desk to secure the cables behind a piece of wood that comes about a foot down under it, so they are behind there.
Also, the HyperV server has been swapped. Pictures soon!

First, the workstation as it appeared before this swap.
Shortly into the initial teardown...
Then we got the inside of the Define XL shortly before that teardown...
Partially into the rebuild of the server components into the Define R3...
And the finished product!
...And the irritating cable management job on the other side!

I wouldn't be surprised if the postman took another Cosmos for his brother. :P
@Asera, love the cable management, I'm far too lazy to do such stuff :C

Most likely it's some bigger logistics company that has outsourced some departments and it appears as two altough it's basically working as one. I.e one car brings the goods to their terminal and another ships it to your house.
No. Posten & Tollpost are two different companies. It's very common practice to default to Posten if for whatever reason you otherwise can't deliver the package though. They are always near-guaranteed to have an office in your general region.
The reason I react to Tollpost handing off the package to Posten in the first place is that they claim they don't have delivery depot in my area. Which is so silly it's funny; the closest depot is literally within line of sight from the nearest streetcorner.
courier companies... don't even get me started. pretty much every major site here in the UK uses either Yodel or City Link and they are terrible. I can't even remember the amount of times I have paid for next day delivery or saturday delivery and have waited in all day to receive nothing. My Corsair 600T and Noctua NHD14 were over 5 days late (paid £20 for next day delivery!) and it was only delivered because I phoned up both the courier and shop I purchased it from to complain.
I was hoping to buy a sound card and modular power supply so I can fit them on my day off on Tuesday but I pretty much know they won't arrive on time, which is really frustrating, so I think I'll hold off a little longer to get some better parts.
update on the cable tiding under my desk.
not perfect but it's a GIANT improvement from my picture above. putting the power strip underneath the desk with velcro pads worked like a dream. just need some more cable ties to complete the bunch of cables you can see on the table leg as I ran out mid process. happy with it so far though, I can actually stretch out my legs.
Not sure if 680 or 690.
And to Crazy: you are an inspiration to me. After seeing your picture I decided I needed to rearrange the cables. Sadly I ran short of cable organizer thingies (no idea how to call them in english lol), so I'll have to finish it tomorrow =p.
