Thank you everyone for your encouraging comments. Yes, my cable management trick really does tidy up the cables and makes a neat bundle. Before, the Raspberry PI kept sliding off my desk all the time and one time it nearly got trashed when it hit the floor because the case it was in was so thin and flimsy.
That's when I decided to spend a bit more and get a genuine PI-STACK off Ebay. It not only looks great but it's really rugged (it weighs close to a pound!), comes with non-slip silicon feet and stays put on my desk wherever I place it. I think it's sold by an outfit known as "Paradigm shift" and it only took about 3 days from ordering.
Anyway, here is a link to the Ebay advert for the top end "gold" model I decided to go for. If you click "see other items" on the right, it links to another less expensive model with black metal supports. Mine has lacquered solid brass supports and is built from 10mm clear acrylic. I'm really pleased with it because it already looks like a very expensive media player when the Raspberry Pi is in it - which is exactly what I am going to use it for when I've got all the software tidied up too!
