Then there's the matter of power. All computer systems will hang (become unresponsive to any and all user commands) eventually and require turning off the power. To facilitate this, I have taken to plugging the computer and all its accessories into one one power strip and then placing that power strip on top of the table where it is easy to reach. This is not the prettiest solution, but it alleviates having to crawl around on the floor and battle with dust bunnies.

We drilled holes in the brick with a masonry bit and mounted the power strip with screws and plastic wall anchors. You could use epoxy or some other strong glue as well.
