The French phrase nom de plume is occasionally still seen as a synonym for the English term "pen name": this is a "back-translation" and originated in England rather than France. H. W. Fowler and F. G. Fowler, in The King's English  state that the term nom de plume "evolved" in Britain, where people wanting a "literary" phrase failed to understand the term nom de guerre , which already existed in French. Since guerre means "war" in French, nom de guerre did not make sense to the British, who did not understand the French metaphor.  See also French phrases used by English speakers .
Adequate screening against . and . is of vital importance on cables connecting computer ancillaries. It has always been particularly difficult to achieve in coiled leads as the coiling process tends to disturb the screening medium and create unwanted gaps. A belt and braces approach, . metallised tape and braid or spiral screen, is one answer, but can be relatively expensive.
Kalestead has produced a range of flexible cables where each core is spiral screened with a coverage better than 95%. These are laid up and coiled in such a way that there is no disturbance of the screen and therefore screening efficiency is maintained with the added advantage of eliminating cross talk between cores.
