Ack. I think I'm having a flashback to my life as a field engineer.

I'm working with a vendor who is trying to setup a new application in our demo lab. Their app runs on a couple Sun boxen in our data center and displays data on a couple of PCs connected to it via the Internet. The problem we're seeing is a delay of about 10 seconds between the time the server sees something then relays it to the PC. The response should be nearly instantaneous.

So, I'm sitting here in the lab mostly twiddling my thumbs, communicating with the vendor with AIM, and occassionally doing something when he needs someone local.

It feels like all those times I was out on a service call and waiting for the NOC to do something.
