There is an SMP client for multiple processor/core machines that will result in much higher point totals. I can post some more details if anyone is interested. It looks like the "Easy" way to do it is using a virtual machine with Linux running on it. This seems like a little more effort than I want to go for, but the points are dramatically higher.
In other news, I missed rinberg signing up. Thanks for joining the cause!
My grandmother suffered a bout with a chemically-induced confusion that was very similar to Alzheimer's, so I have alot of sympathy for the cause.-- The only reason I didn't sign up before was because of the dialup connection I was suffering from, but I got over that...
The 2600+ is based on the rating system that AMD uses to show how their processor peforms compared to an Intel processor. The AMD Athlon family of chips is more efficient clock for clock than the Intel Pentium line. See here: http://139.95.253.
