I want to parse a text file on the cheap and thought I could perhaps use a regex, but brain failure today.
Case 1:
Code: [Select]
Blah
$$ If cond
Jam sandwiches
$$ If cond

Case 2:
Code: [Select]
Blah
$$ If cond
Jam sandwiches
$$ EndIf
Pickled eggs
$$ If cond

I want to detect case 1 and not match case 2. (It is because I have not written the proper code yet to handle nested ifs so wanted a quick warning to say, ‘not yet supported’.)

Am using it now that I have iOS12. Zero bug fixes! And new bugs too now in previously working functions

How fast will it be?

We estimate your download speed will be between 54Mbps and 55Mbps, and your upload speed will be between 9Mbps and 10Mbps. 

The minimum guaranteed speed you can expect from your broadband will be 49Mbps. 

Actually it's narrower than I thought.

Hmmm.    That is rather low and you are only just above the handback threshold.  :(

Aren't they just below it?

See attached,

Apparently according to BT a should get in between 52 and 55Mbps,

That seems an extremely narrow estimate.
BT will have given you an estimate by email when you signed up or last renewed.

52-55Mb is a considerably narrower an estimate than I've ever seen before.

Yes he checked my master socket and said there was a fault at the cab and went off to fix it.

Then he rang me about an hour later to say he had applied the fix and done the reset.

My speed went up straight away to the 43Mbps when I thought DLM would do its thing overnight.

I did swap routers as soon as I came off the phone but surely this would not effect the reset?

I only plugged in my bt hub for the engineer visit as I didnt want him to refuse a fix due to using my own router.

This is good news, a step in the right direction.

My only question is why hasn't this been done before? They have had the Fibre First motto for maybe 1 or 2 years and are only just making these adjustments.

Openreach (BT) appears to be making some improvements to their provision process for new Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based “ultrafast broadband” lines, which according to the ISPs we’ve spoken with should result in consumers receiving a more reliable activation date for their service.

The public briefing note for this change is about as vague as you can get and doesn’t tell us anything about what it actually means. Nevertheless we understand that the big advantage of this new process is that the date Openreach initially commit to completing the installation on (i.e. the planned activation date) is now far less likely to change.

Under the new process Openreach should have already carried out the necessary pre-work before advising of a final activation date, which in turn could result in fewer delayed activations and thus happier end-users (customers are rarely pleased when they have to rearrange days off work or change their schedules again). This in turn means fewer complaints for an ISP to tackle.

Overall ISPs are hoping for a much improved customer experience and one where expectations are better managed. Openreach are currently working to deploy their Gigabit capable FTTP network to cover 3 million UK homes and businesses by the end of 2020 and it’s widely expected that this will then continue to reach 10 million premises by around 2025.

Since the demise of my beloved UKServers (absorbed) I have been thinking about whether or not to get a web server up and running. Needs to be ridiculously cheap, reliable, very full functioned. IPv6 support is absolutely essential requirements, which unfortunately will rule out a few worthy candidates.

A thought: Any worthy mentions that are still IPv4-only, and I could always ask them what their timetable for modernisation is tho. That way they will know there is demand rather than simply missing out on silent customers who are going elsewhere.

Presumably the engineer carried out the usual line tests as well as just resetting DLM?
