More Regulation

While I am complaining about useless regulations, it is apparently illegal to run Ethernet cable through your walls in Australia.

The regulations talk about distribution frames and patch panels and such, which is your hint that they're aimed at commercial premises, not Joe Citizen running a 1000BaseT wire from his home office to the living room.) The ACMA is the same body which straight-facedly required people to buy licenses for their home wireless LANs, until September 2002. To a first approximation, nobody did.
