Is there a way in the configuration to limit the download speed of pacman?
Been reading the wiki but nothing relevant on that part

pacman -Ss bandwidth
community/netbrake 0.2-1 [0,01 MB]
Netbrake is an utility to limit the bandwidth used by a process
community/trickle 1.07-3 [0,03 MB]
Trickle - lightweight userspace bandwidth shaper
You can also use XferCommand and wget --limit-rate

pacman roulette : pacman -S $(pacman -Slq | LANG=C sort -R | head -n $((RANDOM % 10)))
XferCommand = /usr/bin/wget --limit-rate 100K --passive-ftp -c -O %o %u
in your pacman.conf will use wget and limit to 100KB/s

Don't get in an argument with an idiot, they'll drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience...
