Rent a U-Haul for about $39.95, put the tapes or disks in the back drive
20 miles.  Even in rush hour on LSD you should make the 45 minute
deadline no problem.  2.5 GB is nothing, the client could get 2.5 TB or
more if they wanted that way.  How's that for throughput?  Latency kind
of sucks though.  :-)
