Via Robot Wisdom comes this Gamasutra article about coding network gaming. It suffers because the author isn't terribly knowledgeable about networking issues and terminology, but it is a good reminder that simply opening up a socket stream and sending data is not an acceptable solution to real time issues. Especially under Windows where the socket layer sucks solar systems through surgical tubing.
