Re: Turn on metered connection in your network preferences
There is a time limit on that option... it will time out and do the update on its own' regardless of this setting.

With any luck, the push for greater performance, on similar hardware, will finally start developers really thinking about optimisation of code.
The requirements for common programs has massively expanded as lazy developers have push more and more crap into programs, without thinking of the performance impact.
A few years ago, I used to be able to stream videos happily without any stutter on my old 1.4 p4 with 2gb ram. Try it today, the same stream, on the same hardware, and it stutters, and is generally unwatchable. My internet bandwidth has increased, and the device is always used on Ethernet, @ 100Mbit. The only thing that has really been changed is the software running in the machine....
I don't understand why IPv6 has to break perfectly good functionality that exists in IPv4. Does NAT actually break something within IPv6?
What is wrong with having single device, with a single address that is addressed from the net, and have that handle the translation between that and the LAN???
I understand we are running out of IPv4 address space, but IPV6 seems to exist only to force people to learn something new, and for vendors and trainers to make a mint out of it.
The very idea of EVERY device needing an address that (theoretically) can be accessed from outside also seems rather dangerous. 'Home' devices are often riddled with security holes, so imagine the situation where a SME user has a basic device, which isn't set up correctly by the ISP/manufacturer, and thus exposes each and every device to the wider net... at least with IPv4 and NAT they have some protection for their LAN devices...
I've always liked the use of Docking stations with Laptops.
You put the laptop on the dock, power it up and you are ready to go, as if you had a desktop workstation... no fumbling with multiple cables, power etc.
Can USB-C power a Laptop as well as provide connections for 2 screens, and other USB based devices... cos I can stand to plug in one cable at my desk.
I'm not 100% sure, but I've a recollection that the reason the nacelles are outside the ship is to reduce the risk to the crew from various forms of radiation...
How they get round this in the Defiant Class, I don't know... but the nacelles are 'outboard' just not on sticks.
I know, I'm on my way out... (taps combadge and fizzles away)
