I don't need particular accuracy, "about as slow as dial-up" and
"about as slow as broadband" are good enough for my purposes (merely
testing a GMail-like AJAXy web app) and I've got that. But I was
curious about how one might get accurate rates if you needed. What
project did you need such accuracy for? I imagine a real-time system.
What did you write the thread library in? C? Links?
