Using Google/Cloudflare/central DNS can bite you with large downloads

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/10/22

If you think download speeds are slow for large downloads (or multi-media playback is slow or quality is low) on a fast link, then consider your DNS.

Many people report that using one of the centralised DNS services (like Google/Cloudflare/…) causes slowness because they direct CDN lookups to a small pool of servers that get overloaded.

Some links:

Legality of Dutch non-reanimation statements

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/10/22

For my link archive:

The above are legally binding, but not all medical personnel knows them  by heart.

The legal document is the hardest for the medics to find, so way easier are the badges or tattoos.
