Viele Panzer (= many tanks) for the SWMBO translation.
The "mistress" thing, though...a mistress is expensive enough. Once she has become The Missus, your bank manager writes red ink letters.

One would have all the other wire instead of air around the transmitting pair. This, in theory, would be a disadvantage.

a dozen inches of cat 5 is not hard to seperate

well, my mind of course was in the gutter, thinking more along the lines of D/S lifestyle

in my own case, the wife is a bank manager, and fortunately has been "assisting" with my financial affairs for the past 38yrs, otherwise I'd be living not just thinking in the gutter

OK. Gotcha, Dave. Air dielectric is a major benefit with this idea. Just need to be reminded of some basic principles every now and then.
I ordered the dirt cheap cable from Amazon. Thanks for the link, chazdrumzalot.

Chris,

>>the wife is a bank manager<<
Has she young sisters?
Can I move to BC?
Can I have holidays elsewhere when the weather turns nasty?

To get back to topic: cables canīt improve what lousy boxes butcher. They can show that good ones are good.

Probably. Educated Europeans have a fairly easy path thru immigration.

Most of the "nasty" weather here would be considered "nice" weather elsewhere

Yea, that one was particularily nasty... it would have been nice to be elsewhere for the 18 days we were without power.

I may have been 'hosed' on the cable deal. It is stranded, and may not even be copper.
Hopefully I'll hear back from amazon/the seller soon. Since I ordered mine, Amazon has changed the vendor and increased the price for this item... So I'd advise those looking for inexpensive solid core cat5 to not buy from that link.

On the positive side, the cable smells like licorice...
