    I haven’t done it yet, as the speed improved.

    It tests every 30 minutes, so some variance might be possible during that time frame – you can see some pretty big drops, but it hasn’t really been noticeable (i.e. I’ve still been able to play online, whilst the wife has been able to stream).

    Well, the test was running variable sizes.

    Running a 100MB test file to the server gives the following:

    That’s from my Mac mini, connected to a 1Gb switch, to the TP-Link adapter. This goes to the Router, then via a powerline to the under TV switch, to my DS116. That’s a dual core MARVELL Armada 385 @ 1.8GHz with 1GB RAM. No encryption on…[Read more]

    After some issues with my home network (my network would be intermittent and timeout trying to access websites at times and occasioanlly it would kick me from playing COD – I couldn’t narrow it down to whether it’s my router, my PiHole or my powerline networking. However, it was effecting my Mac and my PC – both access the network via a powerline…[Read more]

    I thought I was the only one! I managed to get around it slightly – I save the folder I need to access via a browser bookmark (rather than access via the Teams application) and if you have it sort by alphebetical and then save the bookmark, it will have saved the view and it will be in alphabetical order as well. And I also then have a shortcut…[Read more]

    It is my landline connection with Origin. I haven’t tried to investigate, as it’s only reasonably recently that it’s got poor. I only set the monitoring up yesterday on the Pi, so I’m keeping an eye on it. I am connected to the Master socket, as router is out in the front hallway, however, I haven’t tried the test socket but following the…[Read more]

    Feel like I’m missing out. My last 24 hours of web have been pretty poor (measured using speedtest-cli and plotted with gnuplot).

    Certainly agree with that – I’ve got the new MacBook Air as well (wouldn’t have the old one – the old keyboards were awful) and the iPad Pro keyboard is actually better IMHO than the MacBook! I would perhaps prefer the bigger iPad now I’m using as a laptop, but the 11″ is better for the inspections I carry out.

  • Drezha replied to the topic Whither Apple? in the forum Apple Talk 6 days ago

    I don’t think so – afterall, Office runs on the iPad, which is already an ARM architecture. Sure, there’s some slightly differences between the two, but generally it’s very similar and very usable. In fact, work bought me an iPad Pro instead of a Surface tablet (partly to do with inspections and inspection software) and with the new Magic…[Read more]

    I just seen that the developer kit costs $500 and belongs to Apple – i.e. you’ll have to send it back at the end.

    I guess in the future XCode will be on ARM, as the Mac’s will be on ARM! Wether or not that means that the iPad will be able to run it or, I guess we’ll find out.

  • Drezha replied to the topic Whither Apple? in the forum Apple Talk 6 days, 9 hours ago

    They will have emulation for the first two years apparently with Rosetta 2 – based on the similar ideas behind the original Rosetta when they switched from PPC chips.

    I gather he does not want, or qualify for, the ARM transition kit?

    I’m concerned that some of the apps that I use wont be ported to ARM, and some of the these apps are the reason I…[Read more]

  • Best of luck.

  • It appears that I am mistaken – the issues are still there today.

    @EdP – That appears to show the items aren’t working at all, whereas mine will work perfectly for a peirod and then lag or miss key presses. And only on Mac, not Windows.

    This Mac Mini is beginning to royally annoy me – it’s already had a dead logic (mother) board within the first…[Read more]

  • Yeah, I’ve did a google search and people were indicating issues with macOS Catalina and the items not working.

    However, I downloaded the firmware updater and updated the reciever. That appears to have sorted it for the time being – time will tell I guess! I’ll give it a go throughout the day. It had seemed to go through periods of working and…[Read more]

  • Perhaps might not get to much help, but I need a second pair of eyes (well, thoughts) on what the issues could be.

    I have a Logitech Unifying reciever, driving a Logitech K350 and a MX Vertical mouse. On Windows, it has no issues at all.

    However, on macOS recently, it’s been dropping in and out and I’ve found that occasioanlly it’ll take a while…[Read more]

    I think this weekend is the first time my parents have been legally allowed to pick up my sister from her student house in Cardiff and bring her back to Devon, due to the differing Welsh rules.

    Or she’s finally had enough of her rule breaking housemates and has decided to go home!

  • Drezha replied to the topic Seaside Lunacy – in the forum UK 2 weeks, 1 day ago

    My understanding is the changing rooms, as we’re having this conversation about the pool at work. The gym is desperate to reopen, as it’s a source of income to the University, but the Government has been very clear at the minute that gyms can’t open. Besides, we’ve got the mammoth task of getitng the other buildings reopen!

    Some of us are still…[Read more]

    No luck for that in the RAF for my officer selection interview – had to have my interview within the mess, as the fire alarm went off in the middle of the interview in the selection centre and we had to improvise! :good:

  • Drezha replied to the topic Storage price in the forum PC Talk 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    It would be useful for game storage – I’ve a 3TB that I now need to keep an eye on for storage, and that’s with a second 256GB SSD that I’ll move games to and from :wacko: Of course, I don’t need to keep them all downloaded, but even with reasonable broadband, the sizes of some of them mean it’s easier to keep them downloaded! COD was a ~125GB…[Read more]

    I forgot RDP :good:

    Still blows VNC out of the water.

  • Drezha replied to the topic Suggestions on Laptop in the forum PC Talk 3 weeks, 1 day ago

    I don’t think there’s a huge difference – you lose out on Bitlocker (well, creating Bitlocker drives, as you can still open them). Micorsoft have a page on the differences, and there’s very little there that would get me as a home user to upgrade.

    That said, I did upgrade my laptop to Pro using a key from eBay for Bitlocker – that was only about £10.
