+1 for the PVC. Fusion is a spray paint by Krylon that is made especially for plastic. It's available in a number of colors or can be used as a primer for regular spray paint (which would usually flake off eventually if used by itself). If you can find the right tool for the job, you could cut a slot down the full length of the pipe that would make cable installation and removal easier under some circumstances (such as cables with large connectors).

You might try to see if making your headings using a filename field would work. See Chapter 14 - Working with Fields: documentation.openoffice.org/manuals/userguide3/…

comment Permanently deleting files on Mac OS
rm -rf bin - oops I forgot to cd, but I'm not in / so not so big an oops. rm -rf /bin - oops I forgot to type . so BIG OOPS! (regardless of where I've cd'd to)! So I disagree.
