Not using Gigabit ethernet, clearly
Hmmm, sounds like someone used a very old router, and it saturated at 100Mbit/sec.
No, nobody would be that careless, shurely?

I think you'll find that everything up to WinXP didn't use an activation server. The product key was simply checked to see if it was legitimate. I don't know for sure, but expect, that there was some way to transform the key and see if it belonged to the group of allowable keys for that product. I remember that keygens were available for many bits of software, once the valid-key-generating algorithm was reverse-engineered.
"Everything is analogue if you go down far enough - the point is where the analogue values come from. The relative levels of amplitude, phasing or frequency compared to the carrier signal strength of a radio signal will always be the same as its actively generated. The hardware in an SSD however is fixed and so maximum voltage levels in the cells will decline as they age, but more to the point - not uniformly between them. So the firmware can't simply adjust its voltage level parameters to account for it."
So maybe they'll do a really slow refresh of cells, like DRAM with a really long refresh cycle?
Sorry, but GCHQ isn't an illegal operation.
Whenever questioned, they trot out the line that goes “Our work is carried out in accordance with a strict legal and policy framework which ensures that our activities are authorised, necessary and proportionate, and that there is rigorous oversight, including from the Secretary of State, the Interception and Intelligence Service Commissioners and the Intelligence and Security Committee.”
What they don't say, is that this legal policy and framework is pretty much the words:- "Oh, go on then."
There are some truly wonderful episodes of IoT, it is always a favourite to listen to. And, I might add, Inside Health, Inside Science, Material World, Costing the Earth, All in the Mind, A History of the World, The Bottom Line. Best of all - The Life Scientific.
