>>The "cable" is a very long USB cable of a Logitech headset. I simply
>>want to hang it under my desk without a jumble to catch my feet on.
>>I need the length so I can move around during lengthy Skype calls...
>>now becoming 2-3 a day.
>>The "plastic" was spring-like, and produced the effect like a typical
>>telephone cord does today.
>>An alternate would be something that creates larger coiling something

>Also, try looking through this mess of cable organizer pictures and
