Another use for this
Authored by: Anonymous on Jun 28, '02 12:41:04PM

Those of us doing web design know that download time is an extremely important consideration. However, with the greatly increased utility of broadband, we lose touch with modem users as we design. I personally have a T1, and most everything loads instantly. I no longer have a "feel" for how my pages load on a modem.

It looks like you could set up CarraFix on localhost:80, and throttle your web server back to 4k/sec or so, to emulate a 56k modem on a slightly sluggish day, then use Apache to preview pages at modem speed. I am going to try this and report back my results.
