comment Drilling holes behind existing walls/ceilings
Great advice to use an auger bit, and to use the bit to pull the cable.

comment Why did oiling cause this crank to become dirty?
Probably any oil or grease you use will cause dirty to stick. Your best bet would probably be dry silicone spray.

comment Help connecting cat5e cables for home networking
I think you might be right. Looking at the twist of the pairs, it does appear that the beige cables may be 4 pair CAT-3 or CAT-5 (not CAT-5e).

comment Everything in my house vents into the ceiling cavity. Should I change this?
If there's good ventilation in the attic space, you may never have a problem. The practice of venting to the outside, is to reduce the probability of a problem. Even if you don't vent the exhaust properly, you might never have a problem. You are, however, increasing your risk by not venting properly.

comment Help connecting cat5e cables for home networking
The top most beige cable is cat3 with two phone lines. The red and green wires are line one, black and yellow are line two. All the other beige cables may be cat5, though are used only for a single phone line. The yellow cables are also cat5, and are also used for a single phone line.
