Last night was quite the adventure in networking. I played Mario Kart: Double Dash in LAN mode, with my friend Jon who lives about 200km away in London, Ontario. No, we don’t have a cable that long – we used some very cool software called Warp Pipe.

Warp Pipe was easy enough to setup, however the performance was lacking. On my end most of the games stuttered quite a bit. I guess this is the price to pay for putting your packets on the bit bad ‘net instead of keeping them safe on the LAN. Still I thought that the performance would be better.

Well I was browsing the forums over at the Warp Pipe and it seems like the problem might have been Norton Antivirus on my computer… I guess I’ll just have to try again.
