well those of us who don't have access to University grade connections must
make do as we can ;-)

we're on a supposed 1Mb telstra business link and while we max the pipe 
(to the telstra router) when we've got a lot of traffic, any single connection
won't do more than 80kB/sec (absolute "White Whale" rare sighting)
