Hi CALUG community,
Here's a video I recently produced to run on PCWorld magazine's web
site under their Linux Line blog.
It was fun making this video, but one thing I've started wondering
about is why is there such a long latency between the time I press the
enter key to go to a particular web site and the time the web site
starts to appear. Does anyone have any ideas about this?
This is a Pentium III computer (1 GHz) with 384 megs of RAM.
The latency is much longer than when I was using Netscape 2.x on
my Performa 550 Mac, surfing the web with 5 megs of RAM back in 1995.
(with 14.4 kbps dial-up modem)
I wonder if the latency is because I was using a wireless
network? I didn't get a chance to try using this computer with a wired
network while I was shooting the video.
