  5. I would rather see you connect cables with the machines on both ends
    *on* than do it when they're *off*. When they're on, they're going to
    be well-behaved. If there's a chance of any weird stuff getting onto
    the wire, it's while they're powering up and down, not while they're on.

    When I had ntl cable installed, I said to the engineer 'is it allright to
    plug in the ethernet cable 'hot'.
    He looked at me as though I was mad, and stuck it in (hot). :( :)

    Yes, BUT do not touch the actual conductors - you've
    heard of ESD? Well, a little static CAN blow your
    drivers, regardless of whether power is on or off.

    Yes, you are supposed to be able to hot socket
    ethernet connections, BUT remember to tell older
    Windows systems to rediscover the network connections.

    That what you say; I presume to understand, is the fingy with the co-axial
    cable. Which, actually, is what I thought you were saying.
    (you can critisize my grammer/spelling now if you want to)

    Got to go, cat has decided to sit in front of the monitor (writeing blind
    now) :)

    I'm not sure if you have, but no worries mate.
    I've forgotton what the original question was. Are you offering this
    equipment to me? If so, thanks but I don't need it. If you have this
    equipment, but you have a question about it, I politely suggest you find
    out what the equipment is, and start a new thread.
    Asking people to email you is not good.
    You are munging in an odd way; add .ivalid to the end and make the bit that
    people take out on the right hand side of the @
