Normally you want to use TCP because it provides a lot of groundwork for 

UDP, on the other hand, is sort of like shooting spitballs.  They 
usually make it but it's not as reliable.

What's a double?  Is that two bytes?  What's going to matter for lag is 
how much data you're sending and the connection between the two 
computers.  Are they in the same network, or across the internet?
