If we are facing a Threads style attack then I - like many here - would sooner go in the first flash. If however we are talking about a limited exchange (and God forbid even that should happen), then some sound advice is worth heading.
In short, staying indoors could make a very big difference to your life expectancy.
Regarding doppler shift in a car:
Speed of light = 1 billion Km/hour
Speed of Car = 100 Km/hour
Speed of Car as fraction of Speed of Light = 0.0000001
Not saying you are wrong, but the channels to Starlink must be pretty narrow for doppler shift to be a problem.
I have it on good authority there will be a content filter, to ensure that only PG-rated material is conveyed through drinking water pipes. R-rated and higher material (everything from "oo-er" through to "utter filth") will be conveyed through the sewage pipes. Appropriate given the amount of shit that gets downloaded these days.
Yes, I remember ATM (and FDDI) being the next big thing. I remember one glossy magazine stating around 1996:
ATM is the answer if the question is how do I service the telephony needs of a small country whilst also providing space heating and a light show
And all the while Ethernet just got incrementally better.
I was a late starter - autumn '97 downloaded via ftp. Took all afternoon to get the A and N disks. The next day I treated myself to the D and X and apps ones. Then the token ring driver wouldn't work. On the plus side I did work out how to wire IBM type 1 to pass 10-base-T Ethernet. That's the thing about this level of engagement - you learn all about the tech you use.
Yes, I get that Connery was the original, and Craig might be more faithful to the books. But as a two-word imperative "Roger Moore" takes some beating. Rarely* has a single eyebrow maneuver been exploited so magnificently.
"007 what are you doing?"
"Just keeping the British end up, Sir"
* I must give Bill Nighy credit for his own brow-achievements. Specifically at the end of Pride (2014).
