delay factors in a lot. Your typical 1Mbit internet link can have an inherent next-hop delay of 1-60ms on wired technologies which is a significant component of that portion of the BDP. Wireless is far worse,
And I was still kicking myself about the sqrt part from my mis-spent weekend. And I conflated the three together in trying to explain myself.
I really shouldn't post stuff before my third cup of coffee. I may just delete what I tried to post and start over. If there is a way to explain it better (if you can explain it back to me!) I'm either going to make another pot of coffee or go to bed and pull a pillow over my head. Or both.
