I would be interested to know what kind of internet connection that everybody who took part in the chat tonight had.  I only have DSL and I was lagging like a motherfucker.  I started to play trivia, but I would hit the enter key as soon as I read a question (and I read extremely fast) and by the time my X got to the screen the "first" person to ring had already been called on.  This chat is a shit venue for trivia.  Is there a freeware trivia program that we could get?

IRC is still a thing.

Really though, I'm pretty sure people's connection speeds aren't a factor.  Network latency (not bandwidth) may be a factor, but so could a number of client-side issues.

*Something* is causing lag.  Whether it's on my end, aaroads' end, or somewhere in the middle, some of our internet connections just aren't as fast as others.

This was a problem on IRC as well. The last iteration of chat was the only one where it seemed to be less of an issue, but that had security holes that could hide a whale.

I've studied the IRC protocol, and if you're dealing with a single server (rather than a network with multiple servers) and that server isn't so busy as to put a strain on its resources, IRC should have minimal latency.  I don't think any other platform which relies on TCP could improve on that.

I've never actually been inside the AARoads chatroom. Maybe I'll swing-by sometime to see what it's like. I would participate in trivia.. but I don't think I would do well. At all.  :no:

I tried last night actually... Well I was there, but only to watch, not necessarily to answer questions. And the only one I tried to answer (see the Ontario question), I got wrong. :P Oh well.

I tried once. Even though I don't know a lot about roads compared to other people in the whole country (I only know New England and New York for the most part), I came in second with 6 points. I had to leave early, too. I never lost any points for a wrong answer, which probably helped.

If I hadn't been lagging I would have come in second, as I got 19 correct answers.

What was your actual score? Corco didn't mention you in the list.

I've encountered the same problem as you, Bugo, and think its because people start buzzing in before they read the question! (I don't know enough about roads as a whole to do that.)
