Grumble: two of the cat7 cables I have laid are broken, one gives me only 100Mbit speeds, the other up to 30Mbit! I wish I could go back to the store with them but I threw away the receipt.

If that is the worst problem you have this week your life is pretty good, IMO.

Just confirming you are running Cat 7 capable equipment? GigaGate45 connectors?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GG45

I'm sure you are, mostly for others who might try and plug Cat 7 into a Cat 5e/6 device.

Well, if GG-45 uses different connectors, then I don't know what these cables are as they use standard RJ-45s (probably 6a then). In any case, none of these cables should default to just 30Mbit.

I've just checked the spec pages on a trade supplier I used to use when I was working. They're offering

Twisted Pair Patch Cable with RJ45 connectors
Connector: Cat.6A / Cable: Cat.7 S/FTP (600Mhz)
with the explanation

The Cat.7 cable material for operating frequencies up to 600MHz with total braided shielding and foil single-wire shielding (S/FTP) was developed for use in data centres, server rooms, rack mounting of network and control cabinets etc. for networks up to 10GBaseT. These cables are manufactured and tested according to the ISO/IEC 11801 specification.

This product uses Cat.7 cable material. The Cat.7 standard originally defined the GG45 connectors, which were intended as a further development of RJ45, but were not able to establish themselves on the market. In the meantime, the RJ45 connector developed to easily meet the requirements of Cat.7, but has never been defined for Cat.7. Therefore the imprint on the cable reads as follows: "Cat.6A S/FTP patch cords with 600MHz raw cable".

Glory:Have found a solution that works for me to login loop problem following upgrade to 20.04

Grumble:Ask Ubuntu won't let me post the solution till I have ten reputation points which I can only get by answering other questions. None of the solutions already on Ask Ubuntu worked for me.

If Dominic Cummings and his wife were too ill to look after their child because of Covid-19 they were too ill to drive safely for over 250 miles so the police should be able to get them on something.!

I've already written to the Guardian to make exactly that point. "Was Dominic Cummings the 'Typhoid Mary' of the north-east?"

Though Typhoid Mary was a carrier who was asymptomatic. Cummins and his wife both had Covid-19 symptoms when they travelled. As I am sure you know the tracking down of the source of infection was one of the first successful public health investigations

You may not have read my 'recurring nightmare' on the SETI@Home Politics board.

I have a recurring nightmare - and this is purely fictional, from my brain alone - that while Boris Johnson was safely tucked up in isolation/hospital, Dominic Cummings secretly crept out at night to seed the care homes. Reason? - everybody who has looked at the much-needed future reform of the British care system has shuddered at the cost, and put the file back on the shelf for the next government to deal with. So, let coronavirus cull the current occupants: no one will dare to move into the vacant rooms: the fees will dry up: the management will go bankrupt: Dom and his friends will be able to buy them up cheap in the resulting fire sale: and make a killing (sorry!) from the increased fees they'll be able to charge for the 'enhanced biosecurity' they'll be able to boast about when we've all forgotten about this and the next age-group need to be housed.

Please tell me it's not true.
That was written four days ago, in response to the Guardian's 'Agency staff were spreading Covid-19 between care homes, PHE found in April' story. I've asked the Guardian, not to publish my nightmare, but to investigate it as a theory.

Grumble: Netflix changed the way you can see your personal information. In the past this was just an option in your account. No more.
Now you go to your account, ask to see your personal information, give up your password, then go to your email to confirm that you did that request. Then back to the site and give up your password a second time. And then they'll gather the information and will notify you in email when that's done. This process can take up to 30 days to finish... yes, really nice.

I only wanted to see where the heck I had stopped watching a series. But I'll wait.

Someone tell me, am I crazy or did the colours on this forum change to those of Seti@Home? I don't see it on my mobile, but do in FF and Chrome on my PC. Just asking, before some dark theme nestled itself on my PC.

Inspector says my background colour is #222222, which is the same at Seti. All names, message IDs, links etc. are orange. Bars are blue.

Sent it off to David. I see it with both my accounts, in two different browsers. Not in Edge though. Hmmm.

Okay, found it. In Windows 10, when you set Personalize->Colors->Choose your color to Dark, everything in FF and Chrome changes to Seti background colours. That's scary.
