Finally found out how to vanquish the insidious systemd-resolved gremlins in recent Ubuntu-based distros
There's this file "/usr/lib/NetworkManager/conf.d/10-dns-resolved.conf" that you have to shadow with a file of the same name in /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d
So then, in this new file, say you want to use resolvconf again. This is the configuration:
(dpkg-reconfigure resolvconf and then reboot. resolv.conf should be correct again!)
The cable equivalent of "It's the principle of the thing"
Exactly as I thought. The first link is from the RasPi 400. The second link is from my Dell Inspiron 13. Both are wired connections directly to the Xfinity gateway.
So don't hastily blame your ISP when it could very well be that the computer is holding you back.
My DigiPower USB charger stopped working. It was the only one other than the charger that came with my iPad that had a USB-C out.
So I bought one of those Inland ones from Micro Center for $20 and tore this one down.
The failure was rubbishy contacts on the AC in. But now I can never trust this thing again cause it was plastic-welded together and required a vise to open. :o/
meanwhile, runnign speedtest against the Xfinity backup tells me salesman has either been telling porkies again (surprise...), or that the confuser iin't skookum enough (RasPi 400)
probably a little of both.
At least in the Flash days of speedtest, if you didn't have a good enough computer and weren't running Windows or MacOS X, your speed would appear to be too slow.
dunno why my IP is RFC1918 IP; speedtest is supposed to see the public IP.
>Twitter trending the "InsteadOfGoingToMars" hashtag.
They generally bitch about how "it costs over $2B" and how the money could have been "better spent."
At least some people are pointing out that this cost is about 1/7th the cost of *just the hardware and R&D* for *one* aircraft carrier.
It's USA's "defense" budget that needs scrutiny. NASA actually needs better funding (just like about everything in this country that's not "defense budget")
