wondering what a an average to strong ping time is?
also is there anything that will allow me to play directly to my buddies house in the same town under the same ISP? i've heard that you can use a VPN or use linux as a VPN.

the orbs don't handle game traffic or your ping to another person so no worries about where the orb is your connected to ..
same city your pings to each other should be 10 - to 70 depending on the internet you both have .. my one friend had DSL Light and he lives i'd say 2 blocks from me and his ping was a crappy 70 .. he got the open DSL package and now is ping to me is 20 .. a bunch of us use cable internet and our pings are in the area of 15 to 40 ..
distance matters alot in what the pings will be .. however a higer ping doesn't always mean lag , depends on the host and the game .. example: i can't play Links Golf with duke because he lives overseas and usually has a ping to me of 120 or so .. Links is a "ping sensitive game" your HAS to be under 80 .. Ghost recon 2 on the other hand i can kill duke all day and can play with people who have 200 as a ping ..
best thing i can say is .. just try it :]
