This article (https://www.pcmech.com/article/bufferbloat-fix-slow-network/ <https://www.pcmech.com/article/bufferbloat-fix-slow-network/>) is a pretty sub-standard explanation of bufferbloat. But I didn't want to come across as the "smartest (smart-ass) guy in the room"

My plan was to gently correct the worst errors/misperceptions ("it's the bottleneck, stupid") and say that the state of the art had moved ahead, even of fq_codel, then point to the Cake page on the site.

Good. I will try this weekend to organize that info into a page that would serve well readers like those from the pcmech.com <http://pcmech.com/> site who're new to the subject, and curious about Cake/Bufferbloat.
