I love to program, tinker with things and generally a curious person. My career started with developing DOS TSRs in x86 Assembler. My daily work includes programming in Delphi (Windows), Ruby on Rails (Linux) and Java (Android).

My company Hagel Technologies makes network bandwidth monitor DU Meter and other software. I sometimes write in my blog.

comment Does 5 GB of jpeg images take the same amount of time to download and/or import as 5 GB of plain text?
Well we're talking about network latency now, and since the original poster didn't specify the protocol, this is moot. Some protocols/programs know how to interleave the data transfer, e.g. start the second download before first one is complete (download managers for example), thus somewhat reducing the latency-induced overhead.

@chris-nava: Yes, this is very true. I've only considered files of the same size, but you're correct to point to this nuance.
