I think I've paid that at some time or other. Do you remember the old tradition that if you gave someone a knife as a present they were supposed to give you a penny? If not the friendship was severed.

I have been tapped for phase two of Jacks house refurb. A new ring and sockets in the main living room. This will involve cutting the back boxes into the masonry (all in the skirtings at the moment) and chasing cable runs down behind the skirtings and under the floor. We will have to loose the big radiator off the back wall and then repaper all four walls after plastering up runs, the back wall has some 1970's garish patterned vinyl on which needs to come off. I will install the new sockets as a completely new ring independent of the existing which can then be disconnected and the sockets capped off at phase three when upstairs is rewired. He has a a multi-way consumer unit now in the pantry and he is going to consolidate a lot of his IT infrastructure into a small 19" rack cabinet in there with a switch and re-cable all the current surface cabling run up to his attic workbench properly. No peace for the wicked or a handy dad, it's at my own time though, will start sometime in the New Year. :smile:

CAT5 and 6 are perfectly capable of handling all current domestic VDSL speeds. I'm with Kev on fibre to home, it will be an expensive hop to the Croft from my VDSL cabinet on Skipton Road.
