comment Using Water Supply Pipe to Connect the Earth Wire
I'd say no: especially in case of plastic pipes, let alone occurrence of air-bubbles etc, there's no way to be sure you'd get a 'connection'. I'd not rely on fluid for a grounding. The reason these pipes were used was because of the material of the pipes themselves as far as I know, not especially because there was water inside.

comment How can I remove the wires from this lamp holder?
Check thanks! I feel your information should be molded into an answer. If you feel up to it I'll accept it, if not I'll add the tips to my own answer for easy reading.

Not a real option, as the wire is very visible, and is to be replaced by a longer, but still a pretty one (no simple plastic unit, has some thread mesh thingy around it, etc).

You're right, I used "iron" as wrong word for "anything looking slightly like that", but I get what you mean :). The cord will not be flexed I think, because it is fixed a bit higher up, but never say never :). Is it easy to get something for myself to apply those sleeves? I can solder a bit, that would be no problem, but if I'm going to be changing it anyway, I might as well try to get it sleeved like it was?

I think I see what you mean, there was some sort of extra iron part on the default wire (crimp on sleeve?). I believe the current fix is save, but for completeness of this question: is there a way to adapt normal wire to something that fits in here?

comment How to replace wire next to another wire?
I got it to work in the end, described what I did for posterity, but seeing I broke wires and all, I think this might be the better answer, so accepted this :)

I'm not sure that would fit though :(. I have 1.5 cm, and good CAT cable (6/7) is up to 7 mm -> with the coax it might be a tight fit allready, I'm not sure an extra would fit?

That's sounds like a plan, though I don't think the attick comes in to this. The meter box is in the hall, on the same level as the point where the wires go. Up one wall, trough the ceiling (possibly a box/joint there) and down the other wall.

I doubt I get GB speeds if I strip the insulation? Doesn't that affect the wireing?

But how would this be easier then one of the 3 options I provided? There are allready wires in there, so the least I can do is pull something (wire, spring, string) trough the conduit WITH the existing wires?

Would that be better then using the wire pull spring? I'm not sure what the english term is, but it looks like this: commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dragfj%C3%A4der,_spets.jpg and obibouwmarkt.nl/media/catalog/product/cache/3/image/…

comment How can I mount a tablet on a wall?
As a followup: Fixed. Done. Happy :). Now I'm looking for a) places where I can put the tablet (as @lqlarry said: car, more?) and b) looking for stuff I want to attach to my kitchen wall. Maybe I shouldn't have bought this much of the stuff, it is great fun :). Thanks again :)

Sounds good, more sturdy then the velcro option, but also a bit less versatile. Have to think about it. How would you mount the C-channel on the wall? A simple screw doesn't seem to simple for my beginner-brain, as you don't have the space for a screwdriver or such, because of it being all [ shaped I suppose?

I'll see where I can get some "klitteband"-tape (to further confuse the language thing ;P ) around here maybe, good point.

It's not an ipad, so I doubt those will fit ;). I'm not really afraid for the grease, there's some extra space around.
