I saw this electrician work through the "nogs/Studs" by first tying(?) the end of an original cable in the outlet with some sturdy line/cord. He then yanked the cable/wires + cord up into the ceiling then added the new wire into the group, came down and pulled the cord down with everything with it -- he made it look so easy!

I tried that once with a power cable as the original. It turns out that the building codes in the U.S. require power wires to be stapled to the studs. Plus they only drill the holes barely big enough for the wire they're running through. I wound up learning a lot about patching drywall.

When we remodeled our kitchen, I insisted on running an extra empty conduit for future use. Didn't bother with a pull wire, since conduit makes it pretty easy to snake a pull through.

All I want is a 10-2000 f/0.5L with no distortion that weighs 100 grams, fits in my pocket, and costs $300. Is that too much to ask?

My cousin is getting married on the weekend, so I thought I would come down early and see who's free for a shoot and a beer :cool:

When are you coming up this way? Might be able to meet in the middle, or catch up before the other leaves.....

Why don't you just use wifi? N can happily do 100mbit sustained these days no issues, I can transfer around my house at roughly 120-130mbit sustained or so with MIMO N on 2.4 and 5 Ghz bands.

PS3 is B/G only, no N (although you could use two N APs as a bridge). Also, WiFi on the PS3 is ok (not good enough for streaming though) so long as you leave it out in the open. The minute you put it into an entertainment cabinet under your tv, kiss wifi goodbye.

Flying on the Wed 1st for two days of work related goodies, then holiday Fri-Sun. Will drink beer and consume pizza anytime as will Dave, this is all that matters.

All sounds a bit nasty :( I guess it doesn't support adding another via USB either I bet. Bridges are very cool if done right, I got some nice bridging going on at work with Xirrus units (about 6k each) and the MIMO speeds on the bridge are amazing.

Yep that was my experience. Even a bit of distance screws it up, even if my iPod works fine.

I considered that, and I may still try it one day. The powerline networking only gets me 12Mbps, which is honestly enough for now.

Hey all... Back from a great wee holiday.

All this talk of home theatre has made me realise I will be without my 110" screen for however long it takes to have my house rebuilt :| This seriously sucks as I use it 2 - 3 nights a week.
