I tested the fq_codel for wifi code against ioquake3. It works. Using
edca also works. If the big telcos got behind twitchy games big-time,
sponsoring teams running over their technologies, perhaps progress
would be made. It could become like NASCAR....

Regrettably i find the current generation of games like CoD too
realistic. It is one thing to shoot a daemons, gleefully, another to
shoot at people.
