"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

Yup, Linux and MacOS are both based on UNIX so a lot of the commands are extremely similar or the same.

My parents just don't seem to understand that the internet speed affects how fast things load and is the reason why things buffer.

 

Our conversations usually go something like this:

 

Mom: Why is this video buffering, I think we need to change the RAM configuration... or maybe you changed something?

 

Me: No mom! Think of the internet like a pipe. The bigger the pipe, the faster information can travel through it. Our "pipe" is only 6.5Mps "wide". This means that pretty much anything that isn't running on a high performance server (like Netflix or YouTube) is going to have a little bit of buffering. Especially when there are other people on the network.

 

Mom: But there must be some way to fix it... ?

 

Me: Yes, there is, you would need to widen the "pipe" by increasing our download speed. Unfortunately we cannot increase our download speeds any further because we live in an area where there are no ISP's that can provide a faster speed. So in short, if you want things to buffer faster... we need to move.

 

So what happens after this conversation?

They still don't get it.
