   So please indulge those of us unfamiliar with the finer points of
   British outside-plant cable-management...  What does "JCB" stand for?

In case the UK has got bored and gone home....

Literally "Joseph Charles Bamford", who's company, nestled in the Staffordshire countryside near a place called 
Rocester ("Rowster" for those unfamiliar with the vaguaries of English pronunciation!), produces swarms of bright 
yellow "diggers" for use the world over.  

(FYI - they have been sighted this side of "the pond" in both Virginia and Missouri!)
