  1. The Benefits of IPv6

    While increasing the pool of addresses is one of the most often-talked about benefit of IPv6, there are other important technological changes in IPv6 that will improve the IP protocol:

    • No more NAT (Network Address Translation)
    • Auto-configuration
    • No more private address collisions
    • Better multicast routing
    • Simpler header format
    • Simplified, more efficient routing
    • True quality of service (QoS), also called "flow labeling"
    • Built-in authentication and privacy support
    • Flexible options and extensions
    • Easier administration (say good-bye to DHCP)

    The Difference Between IPv4 and IPv6 Addresses

    An IP address is binary numbers but can be stored as text for human readers.  For example, a 32-bit numeric address (IPv4) is written in decimal as four numbers separated by periods. Each number can be zero to 255. For example, 1.160.10.240 could be an IP address.

    IPv6 addresses are 128-bit IP address written in hexadecimal and separated by colons. An example IPv6 address could be written like this: 3ffe:1900:4545:3:200:f8ff:fe21:67cf.

    Orange juice is definitely a sugar bomb; many nutritionists are suggesting that it's better to eat an orange

    I have also been told that (any fruit) by several medical personnel.

    There should be a 5 post guideline. After 5 posts expect the topic to be highjacked. LOL

    For express kidnappers however much you can get out of the machine is what the want. Kidnappers have held women for weeks forcing them to make the maximum withdrawal each day.

    That is not the case with one of our uncles. The money was paid, not with ATM withdrawals. He has not returned.

    It the banks and credit card companies really wanted to fight fraud this isn't the best way to do it. If you have foreign bank accounts you know they use an app or a small code generator. Why not send out one of those and require that generated number as a signature. It would even work on online purchases to make sure it is the card holder. Most of the world uses chip cards requiring a pin. This algorithm based generator would give you a new pin with each use. 

    If your law makers wanted to fight express kidnappings they would require banks to let you set up a HELP code to put in the ATM that would alert authorities and send the ATM photos to the police. If you are being forced to withdraw money under duress you could enter the HELP code first, then the actual code if forced to try it again. You should be able to set up online what balance (maybe $10)  is shown when you enter the HELP code.

    Does most kidnappers want $300 to $400 from a ATM?

    When I put the VPN on the router it slowed it down to the 30’s so I went back to using the VPN on the devices instead where it can be turned on or off. We use Express VPN which is required to watch Amazon Prime videos and it also works to get US Netflix which we do not have. VPN speeds on my PC are generally 30-45 Mbps and are similar on the Fire TV.

    When you do not need the encryption of a VPN, you might consider using a DNS server (ex. www.unblock-us.com) for IP address change. My testing showed higher speeds.  This was covered in previous posts.
