I considered hardware, but if other people are seeing it on different
hardware, I don't believe that's what it is. Anyone who wants to test this can
grab a copy of websplat from http://bleu.west.spy.net/~dustin/soft/ and try it
out. If it doesn't work, modify sockets.c to not disable the nagle algorithm
(I'm going to make this a runtime option, just haven't yet). I did not disable
the nagle algorithm when I was doing my tests.
SA, beyond.com My girlfriend asked me which one I like better.
