Year's end

Didn't get the fourth chapter of the year done. Instead, I just declared what has been done as completing the chapter and have moved on to the next. It's only 21 pages long.

We can't of course because we have optic fibre instead of copper and ADSL requires copper. Raised a request to remove Pair Gain. They'll look at it and decide that it is not possible.
