+1 for GBICs, SFPs 

I don't know if it's just me, but I have the worst luck with them.

This is a riot! I'd love to have something like this at facilities I'm in.
Some useful stuff that comes to mind:
 - Rack screws of various common sizes and threadings
 - SFPs, GBICs, etc.
 - Rollover cable / DE-9->8P8P adapter
 - Screwdrivers
 - Cross-over Ethernet, patch cables
 - zip ties, velcro tape, etc.
 - Label tape

Cheers,
