01:22 – Matthew posts on https://www.Facebook.com/TekThing, What’s your opinion on power conditioners and backup power supplies like a PSU? I live in a large apartment building and was thinking a power conditioner for my HT wouldn’t be a bad idea. Also, a UPS would not be a bad idea as well. The wind is enough to knock out our power and when they turn on the backup generator it only powers the kitchen.
I was looking at solar powered generators but, they are out of my price range.
Thanks! Love the show. Keep up the great work.

10:17 – I’ve been toying with the idea of networking my home. I’ve gone through routers, firmware (Gargoyle was great) and range extenders. But in the end I just prefer an Ethernet connection. I want to run a line (or two) to each of my rooms throughout the house, as well to several WAPs (Maybe with Power over Ethernet?). I’ve read good and bad about CCA Ethernet, cat5e vs cat6, yes or no to PoE, and in the end I’m still feeling like Jon Snow.
12:54 – Patrick,
Do NOT put bare wire in a crawl space. Put it in PVC conduit!
1. It will be more secure.
2. If you need to add more cable, then it will be easier to fish with PVC conduit.
3. Face it, conduit is cool. (Yes, I just said so, so it is. End of discussion!)
PVC is what I used when I cabled (note: not wired that’s for power) my house last year and the second, third, fourth, etc cables where MUCH easier to fish. Also, I used two fish tapes, so I could pull it back and go again, and again.
