Ha!  You primitive single tasker, you!  Lets see, while I am typing
this message:  Headlines are scrolling on the bottom of my screen, a
collection of Rexx scripts are building test data, DH-Grep is searching
for a lost set of files, PM Mail is checking for new mail, Clock going
in the corner, Swap file monitor in the other corner, and oh yeah
90kkeys/sec for rc5-64.  Key rate rises to about 98kkeys/sec at night
when I shut everything down, this is only a P75 after all.

Golly, do one thing at a time.  That's so eighties! (As my teenagers
would say.)

(The above is meant as humor.)
