Y'know, this sorta reminds me of a calculation we did back in the 80s, when, for a laugh, we worked out what the bandwidth of a motorcycle courier was, in terms of equivalent number of 2400 Baud modem lines!

Reminds me of a discussion whether I could throw a baseball with my packets written on them faster than my screen would redraw (300 baud).

[note we decided by fiat that it was possible, and then went to drink beer]

Fool On!
