Bandwidth Usage In Forum

Just a little FYI. I have found that, because of the surveillance cameras being broadcast over the forum webpage, that I take a sizable hit on my available bandwidth. It's about 65K. With only about 300K or so (DSL) available to me in the first place, that is a sizable chunk. I like to park on the Forum page while pulling up the various threads in a separate windows/tabs.

I found, however, that if I click "Search" with nothing in the Keywords box, I get the same list of latest topics in the same order. All the fun with none of the wasted bandwidth.


Upgrade to ARC Pro

ARC Pro will give you immediate updates and new features needed to unleash your robot's potential!

That's a great tip for mobile users. I read the forum while on the train going to and from work. I am willing to bet this is a major portion of my mobile data use.


You're welcome. I hadn't even thought about mobile users.

Strange how these things work out though. I just happened to scroll down to the bottom on the forum page and noticed a button labeled "View All". I never noticed or paid attention to it before, but when I clicked it I found it did the same thing. Odd finding it just after I posted this topic. Oh well, two ways to do it I guess.

Ah yes, I see. Thank you.
