I recently wrote about how free WiFi is the best thing since sliced bread. Well toss your routers out the window, call your ISP can cancel that $40.00/month bill, and buy some bird seed. Pigeons have been used and, proven to be faster at transferring data via ADSL. The term, as the crow flies will soon be replaced with as the pigeon flies with 1.3GB of data.
The experiment was to transfer 4GB over the ADSL line while simultaneously sending out a few carrier pigeons with the equivalent data. First one to transfer the full 4GB wins! Wouldn’t you know the pigeons won the 100km race. I’m guessing that some people have just a bit too much time on their hands. But then again, maybe they have so much time because they’re waiting for slow downloads?!
