Local talk is about 256K but that's a shared medium so
there's plenty of potential to suffer bottlenecks.
Another problem involves the device that connects your
localtalk network to campus ethernet; they too can get
overloaded and drop your performance.

By the way, considering the season, any chance of a live
feed from one of the Frozen Turkey Bowling events being
held around the country?
