I wouldn't like to convey the idea that this is an actually new annoyance, but I wanted to pair up with the last entry, and it has been annoying me quite recently so...
Well, what's all this about? Putting it briefly, when I switch user, the wireless connection randomly breaks. Which becomes particularly annoying if you have a huge, unresumable, download at 6KB/s going on. This typically -but not always- happens when I switch to another user, and then switch back to myself.
For Win* gurus: I've also tried creating
KeepRasConnections with value
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon, as I read somewhere. (Although AIUI that should keep connections up when you logout not when you switch without logging out.) But it seems not to improve the situation...
Why don't I get rid of this alleged OS?!? Different story, and one that I reserve for a longer entry with a report about these last months rather than for a quick shot like this. To put it briefly, however, I also use Linux. No, I don't. No, no, no, on a second thought: yes, I do. Well sort of, the truth being that a priori I'm not preventing myself from using any OS that will allow me to do any specific task with the maximum efficiency and ease, but also that appearently I've been involved in tasks, lately, that didn't make me want to stay away from redmondish sw strongly enough, and more importantly that I'm the unvirtuous kind of lazy man. Or at least not virtuous enough! More Impatience, more hubris, soon!!
