I attach a microSD card in a USB adapter in order to perform backups, 
but I do only intermittently - every few days to a week or so. I could 
probably leave it attached to the ntpVIZ Raspi 1 and rsync over the LAN 
though; I should probably do that, then I can back up on a more formal

Latency, jitter, etc, are terrible over wifi, and I have pretty good 
wifi. When I monitor the netdata graphs in realtime over the WAN, 
there's no visible change to the metrics, and that generates a lot of 
https traffic, so I don't think that's it.

That said, latency and jitter were terrible when I first got my raspi 1 
a couple of years ago; I've never tried it on the 3, so perhaps wifi on 
the raspi 3 might not suffer those issues; I will have to look into 
that. It'd be nice to be able to untether the little devil anyway, so I 
could easily relocate it elsewhere in the house where ambient temps 
might be smoother. I will check it out!
