I'd like to see more investigation. I think that would follow from narrowing results down to only those that were significant. If you find 500 tiny differences between two things, most of which are just measurement noise, you have no reason to investigate further. But if you make one big significant finding you can do a whole article about what it means - why is the Frooqux significantly faster ? Is it the same on an AMD machine ? In OpenSolaris ? With a different network card ?

Moving to a decent ISP as soon as
BT get around to it... but that's a week away, plus another week for the
new MX record to propagate around. Three weeks without properly-working
