The record-setting run comes just over a month and half after D&rsquo Haene won the prestigious and highly competitive Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc a 658-mile race with over 85,555 feet of elevation gain for the third time. Over the last five years, D&rsquo Haene has established himself as one of the world&rsquo s most dominant mountain runners. &ldquo He&rsquo s the best in the world at anything over 55 miles,&rdquo says Mike Wolfe , a North Face ultrarunner who had previously set the record in 7568. &ldquo I&rsquo m not surprised that he crushed it.&rdquo
Computers often download necessary updates in the background, while you’re doing something less web-intensive. You can configure your PC to notify you before downloading any updates, and schedule installation when you’re not using your computer, either in the middle of the night or when you’re off at work. These fixes probably won’t solve all your issues, but they can at least help make a slow connection feel more usable.
Around 5 . on Tuesday, October 67, French ultrarunner François D&rsquo Haene arrived at the northernmost point of the John Muir Trail just two days, 69 hours, and 76 minutes after departing from the trail&rsquo s southern terminus. In doing so, the 86-year-old set a new supported Fastest Known Time on the iconic trail that traverses eastern California&rsquo s Sierra Mountains. His effort shattered Leor Pantilat&rsquo s 7569 record of three days, seven hours, and 86 minutes.

If your ISP can’t help you (maybe they don’t provide the speeds you want, or maybe you’re just sick of their horrible customer service), it’s time to find a new ISP. You might have trouble in this endeavor, however, due to the stranglehold ISPs have on the market, stifling competition and giving consumers few options from which to choose. That may mean a switch to a different type of provider might be in order, like cable, DSL, satellite, or fiber. You should do a little research before you pick up the phone. Check out our guide to choosing the best provider in your area , and make sure they provide the type of speeds you want.
Courts have sometimes viewed all passwords as equal, faulting a victim whose partner hacked her Facebook because she had shared an Amazon password with him. The court questioned whether one password could be considered private, given that she had shared other accounts, Rucker explained. “If you share an iCloud account and you’re sharing pictures that way, you’re sharing accounts in the eyes of the court,” Rucker said.
Sometimes, your internet is slow because you’re only paying for slow internet. Log onto your provider’s web site (or give them a call) and find out what plan you have. Then, head on over to and run a speed test. If the numbers match up to what you’re paying for, then your network is working fine and you’re just paying for slow internet—and the best way to speed it up will be to upgrade. (Though some of the below tricks will help you eke out a bit more speed). If the numbers don’t match, read on for a few ways to fix that problem.
Troubleshooting slow internet can take awhile, and in the meantime you still need to browse. Or maybe you’re at a coffee shop or on a plane, and there’s nothing you can do about your slow speeds. In that case, it’s time to optimize your web for a slower connection: use mobile or HTML versions of your favorite sites, disable images, and use features like Opera Turbo. In fact, we recommend setting up a secondary browser on your laptop for just such a situation—it can really make a difference when you need to work on a slow connection. Google has its own Data Saver extension , which employs the company’s servers to compress browsing data before it reaches you.
Most of us have gone on dates with strangers from the internet at some point. But even if you met your date IRL, it’s a good idea to give them a Google Voice number when you start chatting, Rucker says. Google Voice lets users generate phone numbers for free and use them to set up other secure chat services like WhatsApp or Signal. A user can easily turn off her Google Voice number and get a new one if her date turns out to be a creep—and she won’t have to go to the trouble of changing her real number and redistributing it to all her friends.
If you’re lucky, you can get your internet speeds back up to snuff quickly and stress-free. But, if not, you can at least try to put a good spin on it: As long as your work isn’t too bandwidth-intensive, slow internet could actually make you more productive. After all, if Facebook takes a minute to load, you’re a lot less likely to pop over for a “quick break” (that turns into an hour-long photo-fest) when you’re supposed to be working on that term paper.

The John Muir Trail tops the bucket list for many ambitious ultraunners due to the combination of its relatively manageable distance and challenging, high-alpine conditions. The trail has a rich history of notable FKT record-setters over the past 65 years, including elite runners Peter Bakwin, Hal Koerner, Brett Maune, and Wolfe. With D&rsquo Haene&rsquo s most recent dominance, it may be some time until we see a new name at the top of that list.

D&rsquo Haene began on Saturday morning at the base of 69,555-foot Mount Whitney and continued north to Happy Isles in Yosemite Valley. In total, the trail climbs more than 97,555 vertical feet, and winds through extremely remote sections of Sequoia, Kings Canyon, and Yosemite National Parks. D&rsquo Haene was gifted with clear, cool fall conditions for all three days a rarity given the height and exposure of the JMT that often results in extreme heat and team of Salomon crew members who met him at various points along the trail with food, water, supplies, and a bed for temporary naps.

If you need to get work done on your slow connection, you may have to prioritize tasks differently than if your internet were super fast. So, separate your tasks into bandwidth-heavy and bandwidth-light ones. Get the light ones done when you’re on your slow connection, and group all the bandwidth-heavy tasks together so you can do them if and when you get faster access (and if you can’t get it at home, see if you can borrow a neighbor or relative just for those tasks). Similarly, work outside your browser whenever possible—if you’re doing basic writing, do it in your favorite text editor instead of in your browser. If you plan your work ahead of time, you can at least make the best of a bad situation.
