last day in Chicago

I’m all packed and will be heading to the airport in a few hours. We’re not finished with the configuration but I should be able to finish the rest of my tasks remotely, as long as the connection is fast enough. I’m going to miss the one here, where I regularly get 400KB/s downloads and 27ms ping times to my server. Back at work it’s around 30-40KB/s on a good day and ping times often go above 1 second. It’s hard to get much work done remotely with that kind of lag.

  2. Lag is evil. I telecommute 3 times a week and sometimes the lag through the company’s gateway is unbearable. It makes work efficiency drop by orders of magnitude. Sometimes there is no noticeable lag, but usually there is a small 100-300 ms delay.

  3. I agree and it’s annoying because they’re wasting our time and their money. For a few hundred bucks a month they could get a connection that would allow people to be much more productive.
