We never throttled anything for anyone.

On the Mac and the SGI you can have multiple connection types defined
and then switch to PPP which kills the network connection to the
internet.  You don't have to reboot to do the switching.  So they had
to use a modem and the dial in log was used as part of the QA.  If
they were honest and wanted to make the sign off quicker, they would
call one of us two that had full access to the network and we would
watch them dial in and sign the job database as tested.

No I don't, I am so against throttling for anything below 40K a
second.  If you can download the file or whatever faster the other
users don't have to wait as long to get more bandwidth.  I have seen
places that restricted every connection to 2K.
