And for starters, 192.168.1.1 apparently leads nowhere.

From http://192168-1-1.com/
192.168.1.1 is IP address used by several router manufactureres as default address for the router itself. This address is mostly used by Linksys routers as well open-source linux-based firmwares that are compatible with Linlsys routers. As a consequence 192.168.1.1 is likely to be set as default gateway on computers connected to the router. http://192.168.1.1 also usually contains web-interface that controls router's configuration. If you are unable to access this address it's likely that you have some kind of network configuration problem.

See for your self where it goes on your network.

How about a "walking" tax? If you use a sidewalk, you should pay your fair share to maintain those sidewalks.

Then it is on to shoe & boot tax.

That's called a sales tax which you pay in Pierce County.

9.4% these days.

I've been using Domain Name Speed Benchmark for years.

https://www.grc.com/dns/benchmark.htm

A unique, comprehensive, accurate & free Windows (and Linux/Wine) utility to determine the exact performance of local and remote DNS nameservers . . .
“You can't optimize it until you can measure it”

Now you CAN measure it!

DNS Benchmark has a smaller foot print.
The best way to familiarize yourself with the DNS Benchmark's operation is to download a copy to your computer. Note that it's not very large (only 163 KB) so it won't take long. And also note that there's nothing to “install” — you just run the executable file. So fire it up and poke around at its many features.

What works best for you is what works best for you.

I measure about once a month and set the three fastest pairs.



How do you set 3 pairs of addresses? I can only set 1 in Local Connections.


Look under your ‘Network Connections’, in my case, open my NIC card properties, click on ‘Internet Protocal Version 4 (TCP/IPv4),
click on ‘Properties’,
click on ‘Advanced’, in ‘Advanced TCP/IP Settings’
click on ‘DNS’ tab,
click on ‘Add…’
and add your addresses.

I added my three fastest DNS pairs.
63.251.161.33
63.251.161.1
8.8.4.4
8.8.8.8
206.253.194.65
206.253.194.97

In addition to these tweaks I use SG TCP Optimizer to fine tune my connection.

TCP Optimizer 4 (latest stable release that works with Windows XP, 7, 8, 8.1, 10, 2012 Server, etc.)

...I prefer counted by people. The good old traditional way


dAt Would Be a Bunch of FAKE Illegals getting LOW Pay and Taking Jobs Away from REAL Americans.

heeeheeeheee

REAL Fake Deplorable Irredeemable YAP

Make SCIENCE...

According to the Center for Immigration Studies (Low immigration - Pro-immigrant) Center for Immigration Studies:

In December 2015 there were 61 million immigrants (legal and illegal) and U.S.-born children under age 18 with at least one immigrant parent living in the United States.

Immigrants allowed into the country legally and their children account for three-fourths (45.3 million) of all immigrants and their children.


https://cis.org/61-Million-Immigrants-and-Their-Young-Children-Now-Live-United-States

How would you classify these 45.3 million Legal Immigrants living in the USA?

Illegals are not immigrants to start with. You only get immigrant status by entering our country legally.

Are your ballots counted by people or machines? I prefer counted by people. The good old traditional way.

What part of the "The same paper system is also used over here Mr. Kevvy" did you not understand?

Cheers.

Sorry, I do not understand the details of your voting systems. That is why I asked who or what counts the paper ballots.

People only and done the exact same way as in Canada.

Cheers.

Couple years ago my County went to scanners for counting. Allegedly more cost effective and fewer errors. Har!

They don't count absentee ballots here unless it looks like that number of ballots could change the election results. More election cost cutting. Har!!

In Canada, we have a federal elections commission Elections Canada. It is run by all federal parties jointly to ensure it remains uncorrupted and non-partisan. Voting is done by registered, tracked, tamper-resistant paper ballots with serial numbers to prevent ballot stuffing, fraud, etc. No voting machines are permitted as they are "black boxes" which have been demonstrated in U.S. elections can be hacked and lose votes (sometimes in the thousands) with no notification. When the votes are counted the count is watched over and verified by a representative from each party. The completed tally is signed off by those representatives to show it was accurate. Thus we have very few issues/allegations of voter fraud, tampering, etc.

Even India, the world's largest democracy with about a billion voters, uses hand-counted paper ballots. It takes only three hours to tally the entire lot.

I also agree in contentious federal elections like the U.S. one that ID should be a requirement. If one needs to present ID to buy a beer then I don't see how voting should be exempt.

The same paper system is also used over here Mr. Kevvy. ;-)

Cheers.

In my local (County) we are mail-in only balloting so we are paper system. My preferred method too.

And I always wondered how he held onto his hat in a 100+ MPH wind.

Maximum speed for B-52 at 644.42 mph (1,037 km/h) I think it was a little faster than 100+mph to start with. Sometimes called artistic license in story telling.

Of course, Steve Bannon, President Popular Vote Loser's right-hand man in the White House, is registered to vote in two states—New York and Florida. One of the Trump offspring, Tiffany, is registered in both New York and Pennsylvania. Trump Treasury secretary nominee Steve Mnuchin is registered in both New York and California. And there are two more double dippers in Trump’s corner: son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner is registered in New York and New Jersey, and Baghdad Sean Spicer is registered in Rhode Island and Virginia. Presumably all five voted Republican.

Why aren't these felons serving time?

Al Sharpton knows, ask him.

No he isn't a successful businessman; what is it now, 5 bankruptcies? He is a successful thief and bully. Con man would be an apt description. Con men belong in jail.


I'm trying to be nice.


Why not say exactly what you think? You can do the same about Obama's mistakes and so on.

If you have a negative view of the president, is that possible here, as this is a kid friendly site.
see 1st rule on left.

So the only way you can express your view is by breaking the forum rules. Har!

Ah come on man, you are cleverer than that...

Or well maybe you are not...
