    Talking Sympathies to Cider

    And to all our other SA members

    I just heard on our radio that they had a test between Telkom (the largest SA broadband provider) and an 11 month old carrier pigeon called Winston.

    Winston carried a 4Gb USB stick 60 miles in 1 hour 8 minutes, and the data upload took an hour. In the same time Telkom managed to deliver 4% of the data Of course there were rules for the contest:

    They included "no cats allowed" and "birdseed must not have any performance-enhancing seeds within".
