comment Multiple instances of Apache
code.google.com/p/modwsgi/wiki/ReloadingSourceCode I've gotten in the habit of doing something like that or wrapping the whole thing in FastCGI so I can just kill off the children & leave Apache running for other purposes.

This is a good idea too, didn't even think of this.

What's the default GW on the desktop? (I'm actually having a bit of fun with this ;-)

Not so much an answer, but see varnish-cache.org as well.

Yeah, on the Linksys itself 192.168.2.0/24 via laptop. If that doesn't work, check into MASQ & might also TCP dump your laptop to see if the packets are actually forwarded through.

comment Does gunzip work in memory or does it write to disk?
IO has almost always been the slow bit. The standard Von Neumann design box fits into that category. I don't know enough about the underlying compression algorithm to answer that definitely, but my edumucated guess? Running a cat produces a logically linear read whereas the decompression option requires more random reads in order to handle the algorithm. It doesn't necessarily read the whole dataset into memory before decompressing.
