telstra vs the pigeon

    Apparently some local from Kyogle wanted to prove how bad their bigpond internet connections were. They intended to transmit a few meg worth of data from Kyogle to Casino using two methods to see wich one was the fastest. One method was using the internet, for the other they dowloaded the data to a storage card and attached it to a pigeons leg. Funnily the data was retrieved safely from the pigeon in a little over 20 minutes. After more than 3 hours and multiple disconnections they decided to cancel the internet transfer seeing as the file was still less than half transferred.
