[02:34:27] <cmn32480> Bytram !!
[02:35:07] <Bytram> cmn32480: !!
[02:35:19] <cmn32480> paying for access on vacation is not the norm
[02:35:44] <cmn32480> they had internet access here for the last 6 years, and deccided to kill it.
[02:35:46] <Bytram> oh.
[02:36:02] <Bytram> do they charg per bit?
[02:36:06] <Bytram> s/arg/arge/
[02:36:07] <cmn32480> meh... $20 for the week isn't too obscene
[02:36:17] <Bytram> not too bad; what kind of speed?
[02:36:27] <cmn32480> dunno., yet
[02:36:48] <cmn32480> but I'd wager faster than yours!
[02:37:00] <Bytram> prolly!
[02:37:44] <cmn32480> heh... nowhere near what I'm used to at home
[02:38:12] <Bytram> that said, this new lappy has a faster UART and I have it set at the max: 921.6 Kbps -- it still varies, but I just downloaded a few files and averaged about 60 KB/s
[02:38:34] <Bytram> I've seen it hit over 100KB/s a few times
[02:38:36] <cmn32480> speedtest.net says 1Mbps/.25mbps
[02:38:46] <cmn32480> wwwwwooooooooooooooooo... speed demon
[02:38:53] <Bytram> yes, I still watch the turtles whiz by...
[02:38:57] <cmn32480> good enough for what I am gonna do
[02:39:18] <Bytram> and I'm occasionally outdone by a wayfaring snail
[02:39:27] <cmn32480> hehe
[02:39:33] <cmn32480> do I need to run Arthur?
[02:39:44] <Bytram> cmn32480: yep, that's about what speed I regularly see.
[02:39:51] <Bytram> cmn32480: don't know .... lemme check
[02:40:02] <cmn32480> am in the que, but i ahave a story up
[02:40:31] <Bytram> we've got stories queued until 10:27 AM UTC
[02:40:57] <cmn32480> I was thinking to load a bunch in the sub queue
[02:41:02] <Bytram> sub queue says 9 entries; but two of 'em are really 'meh'
[02:41:11] <cmn32480> very much so
[02:41:39] <Bytram> ok, Ima takin a look at gewg_'s sub
[02:41:53] <cmn32480> I'm in it currently
[02:42:04] <cmn32480> It is actually good information
[02:42:45] <cmn32480> bytram
[02:43:01] <cmn32480> you want to look at gewg_'s I'll see what Arthur has for us?
[02:43:22] <Bytram> oh, justnow saw ur msg.
[02:43:35] <Bytram> you gots dibs... I'll look elsewhere
[02:43:42] <cmn32480> okie
[02:43:55] <cmn32480> I'll finsih gewg_... then run Arthur
[02:43:58] <Bytram> worthy of note: I just discovered that pale moon also has the network.http.speculative-parallel-limit
[02:44:23] <cmn32480> want a note in the story or you wanna add that in the comments?
[02:44:47] <cmn32480> I think that a worthy addition to the summary
[02:44:53] <Bytram> hmm
[02:45:07] <Bytram> I'd say put it in the story -- gives it a broader appeal
[02:45:10] <Bytram> hold on
[02:45:17] <cmn32480> does the same process work to shut it off?
[02:45:28] <Bytram> i'm running pale moon: Version: 25.6.0 (x86)
[02:46:08] <Bytram> it does for: network.http.speculative-parallel-limit
[02:46:13] <Bytram> but I can't seem tofind the other two
[02:46:23] <cmn32480> understood
[02:47:02] <Bytram> i searched on prefetch and found: network.dns.disablePrefetch (true)
[02:47:14] <Bytram> and I found: network.prefetch-next (false)
[02:47:33] <Bytram> but those don't look to be the same things, and the default values indicated here look reasonable
[02:48:09] <cmn32480> I will only include the one we are sure of
[02:48:16] <Bytram> looking under DNS was also unhelpful.
[02:48:18] <Bytram> nod nod
[02:48:47] <Bytram> no idea of what things are like on Linux, etc.
[02:49:19] <cmn32480> will note that we have confirmed on Windows only
[02:50:49] <Bytram> good
[02:50:54] <Bytram> am working on: Women on Waves: Abortion help by Drone and App
[02:50:56] <cmn32480> done and posted
[02:51:06] <cmn32480> gonna run arthur and see if he has anythgin good
[02:53:01] <cmn32480> now I shall nap while he runs.....
