Re: CODA performance with very low bandwidth

while you could use coda, it sounds more like you want something that
handles multiple users sharing and editing the same files, possibly at
the same time, and has the ability to merge changes and resolve

if this is your only application, i recommend using cvs or some other
version control system instead. that way, users work on a local copy,
and check their changes back to the server, rather than downloading
entire files back and forth, and potentially changing files that
someone else has open for writing.

of course, you might have to choose a file format other than MS word
if you were to work with version control, but that's beyond the scope
of this list.

on the other hand, maybe this is the intended application for hoarding.
