While I am delighted by progress here, given a choice between landing
more fixes to wifi and fixing the site, I'd rather we keep building on
the momentum for fixing wifi. With a core bit landing in net-next
soon, I hope, and airtime fairness well on it's way, the possibility
exists to get kernel 4.8 or 4.9 truly being a vast improvement on wifi
for multiple devices building on the finicy bits of that

that said toke seems to be achieving $DIETY-like results across many areas.

Something like... http://richb-hanover.github.io/bufferbloat-site/ (I have thrown $50 toward the archive.org folks...) It would be easy to redirect the www.bufferbloat.net URL to this site.

archive.org has an automagic 404 converter, if that helps.

Hugo vastly outperforms jekyll, has a jekyll converter, and I'd prefer
to stick with hugo.

In the long run I would like to also resurrect your work on converting
