Not for my box. Its only running at 75% cpu power. Its got four
processors, so a load of 4 is when its running flat out. And I also said
that the box is idle other than the 3 setiathomes.

What I'm trying to find out is why at load 3 when adding another semi-cpu
intensive process, the load starts fluctuating between 2 and 3, when it
should go to a steady 3.4 or something. So the load actually goes down
when I run another process!
