I'm trying to write a little app that downloads a file from my server at
regular intervals and tells me what my true connection speed is.
I'm doing this because I use a broadband connection through my lan.  So,
I have no real way to check my current speed without going to one of
those online speed tests.  I just want to represent my speed in mps via
an icon in my system tray.  If anyone has a better Idea on how to get
the result I'm after, please tell me.  Here is what I'm doing now.
I'm using a ThttpCli to download a 500kb file from my server.  I could
go bigger, but I have a 6000mb transfer limit per month on my server.  I
would rather do this another way, but this is the only way I know of.
Still, doing it this way, I can't figure out how to determine the time
it took to download the file.  I hope this makes sense to someone.
Also, Francois, your components are awesome!  I've been using them for
about two years now.  I'll be sure to send you a post card.
