Top Tip!
« on: July 01, 2020, 01:36:21 PM »
When the local Teleco installed (or upgraded) interwebz connections they used to automatically replace the old telephone cabling in the house with CAT 5 network cable as it gave better perfcormance.

When I bought the new apartment and had Interwebz installed I was disappointed with the speed and the teleco doesn't upgrade the cable any longer.

 I discovered that I couldn't upgrade the cable myself as there is a blockage in the conduit between the telephone point that the modem is connected to and the junction box outside.

Yesterday I had the brilliant idea of cutting the connection between the phone point with the modem connected and the other points in the apartment (we don't use them).

So even faster gubberage then...  noooo:
You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

Doesn't on mine, does the Pub still show up when you open the App?

I wish I knew what the problem actually was, there is a known issue or two with TT and SMF 2.1 but we use SMF 2.0

No, it doesn't show up anymore and can't find it by searching.
