There is a point after which any further improvement is a waste of your time.


Yeah. The issue was, it *wasn't* a waste of time on my older machine. I had no context for how much faster a modern machine was.

However, the time required for a network transfer even over a dedicated 1Gbps line will overwhelm the time required for parsing.


This is true, but for files the calculus is different, and part of what my library was designed to do was to parse through huge data dumps, typically in line delimited "JSON" format, so network times weren't really the bottleneck in that case. Even I/O wasn't entirely, even on my old machine, which surprised me.
