This surprises me.  I see bulletin board sessions, talk,  and chat 
sessions going on with users from all over the world clicking away with 
key-at-a-time programs over the internet and their response times are 
usually instantaneous.  I realize that the echo from the keyboard to my 
screen is through the CPU, and it is also instantaneous.  I'm thinking 
that an AS/400 must be doing those sorts of speeds now too.  I can see 
that a slightly larger model AS/400 might be needed, but hey, thats the 
new paradigm.

Exactly, other users or actually -all- users will notice a keystroke
echo degradation as the system must process every keystroke.
