One p4-m 2.4, one p4-2.6C, one p4-2.53, one dual p3-800, two AXP 2200+s, one A64 2800+, one P-M 715, one celeron 1.8, and whatever computers pass through my office as I work on them (currently one p3-1000). All pretty much 24/7. I'm tempted to add the two p2-233 laptops and one K6-2 450 laptop I hav...

Also back again. With more computers! Three p4s, 2.4-2.6, two XP2200s, one dual P3-800, one A64 2800, one P-M 7something, and one celeron 1.8. Maybe more to come as I set up a bunch of thin clients to practice on.

Thanks Roy.

Hey everyone. I'm trying to figure out if I have a problem, but I have no other data to compare with. I'm running linux (Mandrake 9.2 SMP kernel) on a dual P3-800 with two instances of F@H.
