comment Optimising wireless network
sybreon, that's why i was trying to have two wireless networks connected with cat5 and expected to see an improvement but did not. I basically have a 2hr movie which is 2GB so that should require about 1024*1024/3600 = ~300kb/s which is not unreasonable to expect from a 802.11g network.

Thanks - most of these are fairly general points but I do find the last part interesting. I know my old's laptop drivers didn't support WPA-PSK AES but maybe this one does - I'll take a look

comment Optimising wireless network
This could be a good idea except it requires special hardware ... What's the common speed that you can get out of it these days? A quick google for it got me 14 mbps which isn't that great

comment Why is “less” much slower than “grep”?
I think the line counting happens once grep has found your match - then you see "Calculating line numbers" and it takes a while before it lets you do anything, but you can cancel that with ctrl+c. It doesn't look like the -n helps with the actual search speed.

comment Why is “less” much slower than “grep”?
Yes, I usually use grep with -A/B/C to get some context around what I am searching for but sometimes I need more flexibility as I am looking at log files and need to be able to scroll around and incrementally search from there on/before
