  1. You're average residential sparky is unlikely to have a TDR on hand to certify cable runs unless it's something they specialise in. Certification is usually required for you to be able to get the full warranty from the cabling manufacturer. Not sure if they do home jobs but it's worth dropping Mark an email at MJN Technical Services - http://www.mjntsl.co.uk We use them for commercial stuff, they do a fair bit round Sheffield.
  2. Yup, also if the cable is pulled out of the plug the earth is the last wire to come out. Our plugs are pretty safe as it is, having a plug that can't come out of the socket when someone trips over the cable seems like a step backwards rather than forwards from a safety point of view.
  3. It's not usually possible, the only time it would be is if the client submitted it in a request for some reason in which case you'd need something client side to convince the browser to do it. MACs aren't normally sent. MACs are also interface specific, if your device has both an Ethernet card and a wireless card it has at least 2 MACs in use (although not necessarily at the same time). As for the article, there's so much nonsense in there it's hard to take it serious.
  4. You could rent a hosted Mac Mini and do it yourself....
  5. It's probably caused by some of the iCloud background syncing. I've disabled some of the iCloud functionality on my iPad 1 and it's back to being speedy again.
  6. If you go in to the AppleScript Editor preferences there should be an option to enable showing the script menu which puts an extra item in the menu bar that allows you to access scripts if they're put in the right place in the file system.
  7. Draytek's use the display name from the web UI as the PPPoE service name, if your display name doesn't match the PPPoE service name the AC is using then no PPPoE session will be set up as you found
  8. Xero is a very good online offering, see http://www.xero.com/. There's a free trial available too.
  9. Just because the PPPoE session is dropping that doesn't necessarily put the blame with the ISP, all you can take from it is that some of the LCP echo requests and/or replies that form the keep alive are going missing or being ignored which is why the session drops. The LCP traffic could be going missing in either the DR or the ISP's network or it could be getting ignored by the PPPoE AC due to load issues or similar. With co-operation of the ISP it would be possible to work out where the problem lies as the LCP traffic can be traced via multiple packet captures.
  10. Yes you still should disable the DHCP server on the router/switch as it will prevent potential IP issues later on (IP conflict, subnet mismatch etc.).
  11. It's unlikely we would (ASK4) as the router is a very small part of our costs and we're already offering a low connection fee as you can see on the previous page.
  12. As far as I'm aware we (ASK4) have the largest established network out of the ISPs on Digital Region and are very well connected with multiple 10Gig transit providers and a prescence at the major UK peering points: LINX, LONAP, Edge-IX etc. We were already a reasonably sized ISP before DR came along so we've already invested a lot in our network which stretches across the UK. As for PPPoE, the effect on your MW3 ping should be negligible.
  13. Used Avante Removals a few of weeks ago after recommendations on here and they were excellent. Paid £40/hr for a Luton Van and 2 lads, would use them again happily.
