Here’s the short version:
Two guys discussed whether it’s faster to transfer 4GB in a stick by pigeon than ADSL in South Africa or not… Only one way to find out: Use Winston the pigeon 😛
So they sent Winston on a mission to deliver 4GB memory stick filled with data to some destination, and send the same data over ADSL to the same destination…
Who won? WINSTON!!!
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE OLD SKOOL DESPERATE MEASURES TO TRANSFER DATA!!!!
But really, whether the DSL connection sucked (64kbps~128kbps) or the other peer is download crap load of porn :P… But hey, Winston won 😛
