comment Asus router reports different bandwidth usage from ISP
Last paragraph on Traffic Logging with Asus RT-N56U indicates the router is at fault, "I would do about a gigabyte of downloads and iptables would think that only 200-300kb had gone through. I managed to narrow it down to the fact that instead of the routing going via iptables, it would go through the hardware based NAT and it wouldn’t be accounted for". Though it's unclear to me whether that was before or after he started hacking the manufacturer's management software and firmware.

comment Asus router reports different bandwidth usage from ISP
@DavidPostill I was happy when I first read your comment, because that's an easy formula to reconcile with, but it was just a coincidence with the particular day I chose to open with. I added a table with a dozen days of stats from both router and ISP.

@davidbaumann, it's not upload. Both the router and isp stats show direction and combined columns. I'll add that to the Q.

WTF?! The Forbes article is downright maddening. I will move when I'm damn well ready Microsoft, my choosing, not yours. Alex thanks for your encouragement to persist. I shall do just that.

comment How to disable the “Get Windows 10” icon shown in the notification area (tray)?
wusa /uninstall /KB:3035583 did not work on my computer, I still got the upgrade nag notice on logon and the icon in my system tray. I tried taking ownership and deleting the GWX folder. All files but 9 were deleted, "access denied" for those. Solution for delete: icacls GWX\*.* /grant %username%:F && rd /s/q GWX. Finally at next reboot the nag was gone.

@Ramhound eh? The Store calls them that: "To use this add-in, you’ll need ... Excel 2013 Service Pack 1 or later ..." [emph. added] (ref)

comment Install Office Store app in offline Desktop Office
@Ramhound, ...because I have already successfully installed other Add-ins by downloading a file and adding them. I suppose another way of wording the question is "how do I download an Office Store app for offline install?"

don't use word "link", it's confusing the issue

comment Install Office Store app in offline Desktop Office
mmm. Looks like using "link" confused the issue. "Connected service" might have been better. @DavidPostill there's a world of difference between a person opening a program and going to example.domain.org and carrying out some kind of work there and installing a service that operates in the background without user intervention or knowledge on it's own schedule and carrying out opaque tasks. In any case debating the wisdom of such policy is not the topic.

comment Can I move $Windows.~BT to another volume?
Hmmm. If I move the ESD's in the ~BT folder somewhere else won't the upgrade app just download them again, because they're missing? The ~WS thread doesn't seem to apply, it's about creating a copy of the upgrade files after they've been used.

comment Deleting and moving files is sluggish starting today on Windows 7 with SSD
This common for OCZ (and others?) if the drive is getting full. Clearing some space, more than 10%, and see if that helps.
