comment Connections to specific websites/services is incredibly slow/erratic while using universities internet. What is going on, and what can I do about ti?
What's the latency on the pings? And when you say "upstream time" and "downstream time," do you mean the bandwidth or the latency?

I don't think it can filter traffic by subnet, however.

comment OpenVPN as a paranoid mesh network
Hey, thanks for the answer. My scenario is as follows. Basically I have a few computers behind a very strict inbound firewall that I can't control (but anything outbound is allowed). I would be using a free Amazon EC2 instance to act as the server. Bandwidth is limited, hence my desire for a peer-to-peer connection. Also, I don't entirely trust Amazon to see everything that happens on the VPN. I could have two layers, one for NAT busting and one for secure communication, but then Android, which only does one layer, can't join the party. If you have other insights, I'd appreciate them!

comment Where should I store source downloads for installation?
That's correct. All package managers keep a list of files installed by the package, so you can delete the built package after you install it.
