An update: The Pavilion is now running fast. Little boy is enjoying building new Minecraft worlds ;).
Yes, it's the downloading time that I'm worried about: Airport Express with 5 GHz here:
Laptop only reaches 17 Mbps (doesn't have 5 GHz).
I think that it's the MS Update Server that is slow, or that many users in Tilburg are trying to connect this server. Normally not a problem, except when you start updating a laptop that has been lying on the shelf for a couple of months.
Activated MS Parental Control today, since the self regulation on the first official holiday wasn't to call home about.
on the first official day of the Summer holiday
How does one get 30 GB of free Dropbox space? ;)
This is real countryside (only 60 km or about 40 mi. from Munich).
Oops, sorry, make that 22.2 GB. I have 22.5 GB in my free account.
Back in the day, I recommended it to all my friends, and so got all the free GBs based on that. I also did all the stuff that gets you free GBs, such as using their Auto Photo Uploader thingee (didn't really need it, just switched it on to get the free space).
So now I use CrashPlan PROe instead, but still have my 22.5 GB of free space in Dropbox which I still use for some stuff: like sharing files and screenshots.
Brand-new HP Pavillion i5, with SSHD. Good internet connection So I'm totally puzzled
Windows 8.1. Holiday season here, perhaps that's extra stress for the MS update server?
