mmm Perhaps there's a correlation in udner capacity <hrrrm> ;)

Most people I know on hard technical fronts (?) tend to drive performance
cars like a TT zed, V8's or like me a turbo VL.

Incidentally, theres a user group where 486 m/b's are considered as
processors for customised fuel injection. ie Basic hardware is cheap,
either use MSDOS boot from flash card or write your own OS, use SCSI
for data loggint to dma driven drive etc etc Linux could possibly be OK but,
you'd have to wait for linux to boot before you turn the key ;)

WHats the record for linux boot times ?
er um - fastest I mean ;-)  (and configuration)
