 Traffic shaping with trickle

"A friend said he had a similar problem and he gave me a URL for "trickle", a bandwidth shaper in userspace. He hadn't had time to test it out, so I thought I'd give it a try. It turned out to be exactly what I needed. "trickle" is everything I had hoped for. It's small, it's easy to configure, it's easy to use and it does what it needs to do and just that. But the thing I like best: the applications I use don't have to be recompiled to use bandwidth shaping and I can use traffic shaping on a per-need basis."
