No, Microsoft has not been recommending .local, as this document, circa Windows Server 2000, states:

> Identify your organization's DNS owner and determine what registered DNS names you have available on the network that will host Active Directory.

> If you do not have a registered domain name, you should register a name with an Internet DNS registration authority.

Actually they've said different things about it:

> A lot of gaming is phone/tablet rather than a PC.

You can take my ability to dissipate over a half kilowatt from my cold dead hands. Some games will always be better on PC because they can make use of the power.

Indeed.

Just the proportion of people who play computer games who see them in this way is shrinking rapidly.

In my last rental car they skipped the middleman; there was no 12v port, but there was a 120V AC socket, as well as the usb.

Yeah, they might join PRISM any day.

I can kinda see edge cases where 1-1 NAT makes sense, depending on the product, or are they asking for NAPT like most people think of NAT?

-----


The latter, AFAIK. It has been some months since the product manager in question forwarded the question to us.

As for 1:1 NAT, we already support other solutions that have similar effects, such as scriptable proxying.

> When was the last time you have to re-authenticate on a native mobile app?

All the time. The Facebook android app is horrible.

-----


Not for me. Did you by any chance move the app to your SD card? Apps that use the android Sync provider don't work if they're moved.

-----


Not to refute your experience, but I've never had to re-auth facebook on my android.
