I dunno. Your dexterity must be better than mine.  I'd have trouble digging up
the roll of tape, removing a section, putting the tape roll down, and applying
the tape to the cable, all in 5 seconds.

Especially if you drop it and it manages to bounce through a cutout in the
raised floor.  That's got to be the single best reason for overhead cabling. :)
