Hi all -
Odd question for you. I have the opportunity to work from home, but it
would require using a sat internet connection (no cable or dsl anywhere
I've been reading up on it and best I can tell I'm looking at 1000ms round
trips... at *best*. Most of what I do I can do on servers at home, but
there will be the occasional ssh, etc.
I recently setup ipfw/dummynet with a pipe and a 750ms delay both in and
out and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be -- at least for
ssh/text. Reminds me of my days on a 9600 baud modem. heh.
I'm curious though whether this is a realistic test. Thoughts?
Any of you use satellite? How do you find it?
