Sloooow update

Hi I use monthly OTA updates. I did it some days ago. The process was reasonably quick for the first two sliders, but the processing of the third and last slider was really awfully slow (between to 4.5kb down to 1.5kb). I had to resume updating five times before incrementally completing the update (good we do not have to resume from zero..). My current location is in China. Is there any reason for the huge difference in speed between the first two sliders and the third one?

What Glen Keane Carried With Him From Disney, and From Life, for His Feature Directorial Debut ‘Over the Moon’ [Interview]

“I never do this,” Glen Keane muses as he swivels his laptop around his office at Netflix, filled with stacks of drawings and doodles — half thought-out ideas that the legendary animator had while working on his feature directorial debut Over the Moon. Through the grainy Zoom video screen I can see reams of sheets that are hung around the room. Some of them storyboards that Keane has drawn for Over the Moon (“I drew more for this movie than I did for The Little Mermaid,” he remarks dryly), othe...

But the new carrier that China is building could give the J-15 the opportunity to l...

Analysis: Biden win would lift Mexico-U.S. ties but energy is 'canary in the mine'

A Joe Biden presidency would lower border tensions and raise pressure on Mexico to respect U.S. business interests as the two neighbors implement a trade deal designed to claw back jobs from China, officials and industry sources say. The Democratic former vice president on Nov. 3 aims to unseat Republican President Donald Trump, who has stirred up tensions with Mexico over trade and border security ever since he referred to Mexican migrants as rapists and drug runners at the outset of his 2015-...
