playing mp3s takes less than 1% of the cputime where it used to take more than 80% on a 486

Only the server guys ever cared about CPU usage. That's why a SCSI operation utilizing 20% over 60 seconds, beat an IDE operation using 30% for 50 seconds (in this case 3 seconds total time saved)

Many people write memos to tell you they have nothing to say.
