Gravity waves propagate faster (all points in space at once,
if I recall the physics correctly <shrug>).

Well, I can build a gravity-wave receiver for about $5
(a great computer project for the astronomically minded).
I just don't know how to build a transmitter (supernovae work,
but they aren't Linux compatable).
