    Linking remote music in Sims 4

    I have a NAS on my LAN and I would like to link the custom music folder to the mp3's on the NAS. Shortcuts won't work. Is a symbolic link required? If so, how do I do that? UPDATE: Apparently such links only work locally and not to a shared folder. I copied them over instead

    WAN IP is a private IP

    I suddenly began to get very slow internet speed, sporadic connections, then complete disconnect. Logged into my router and instead of the usual external IP address, I had 192.168.100.20. I released and renewed and got a normal IP back. Any clue what could cause that?

    Zooms end to end encryption, not really end to end.

    Zoom was never intended to be a common consumer product. It was designed for enterprise use within a domain and/or across VPNs. Thus the medium or environment was security enough. This sudden demand for it has gone outside their intended market. And they are scrambling to fix it.

    Hypothetical ? about VPNs

    I have a what if question about nesting VPNs. Suppose I am subscribed to PIA, Nord and Express anonymous VPN services. What would happen if they were all active? Would there be 3, 2, then 1 levels of encryption on the connection as it exits each VPN service? Or would it end up as a total...

    EU passes the "link tax"

    If Google, FB and the other big boys decide to discontinue the news services instead of deal with it, I bet the EU's major news sites will suffer the same fate as Spain's did in 2014-2015. Traffic to them plummeted.
