Fishing from the pier at Myrtle Beach; first time my oldest has been salt water fishing -



Shark came out from under the pier and stole my hook (someone counted 3 black tips, 5-6 feet hanging out under the pier this afternoon). Some nibbles, that was about it.

One thing I have overlooked that could be a real possibility @lwfitz...

Dizzie might be ghosted somehow in the fibers of the net as a revenge for your teasing him eons ago on how superior your bandwidth is/was compared to his

Jed might be right that it was mate related but I can't confirm.

Use apt to see what dependencies mate hauls in; maybe get an idea of what messed you up.

Do you have a different laptop you can connect?

If you connect with just the VSIDO laptop, do you get the normal speed?

Does Google WiFi have a clause in their contract where your bandwidth is throttled once a certain number of devices are connected like some cell phone providers do?

kernel 4.13

2:13 second install

ISO's uploading

(13 is Magical tonight)

Indeed



I'll check them out tomorrow.

My first guess would be that I'm getting routed through the Charlotte-Washington DC-NYC urban corridor. I was downloading around 0830 EST so I would have been competing with the morning rush. Is nixnut actually hosted in Maine?

There are just times when I get erratic speeds - might just be Atlantic Broadband is a bit wonky here in rural SC.

Getting ready to set up Hyper V on the latest Windows 10 install. Going to be looing at installing VSIDO into a Windows 10 native VM.

Prepping the drive -



getting iso -

I have to say that this new version is much smoother and, dare I say, "awesome"?  :D

Yes, much smoother - and some pretty good new features. The lua is still the same though.

Adding some yad windows to click events on polybar. Clicking on the CPU brings up the output of sensors:

Downloaded the 64-bit for uefi and uefi lite - the sha256 checksums matched.

Took me a couple tries with the x64_uefi full version.

I always get erratic speeds with the nixnut site, so a reminder to users to get the sha256 file and verify the download - one of those "Linux best practices" things, should be done for all iso downloads.
