[RC5] My dual PII-333

Sorry, I should have clarified that the 1.9Mk/s was RC5, not DES. The
client is the only thing running on the box.

    Before we do the math, something has got to be wrong with your
    box. Well, let me re-phrase that. Running *BSD means it might
    actually have some real work to do. What's the load average?

    A P2/333 really ought to do lots better than 900K. My ancient
    alpha 21066A/266 does 1.04M DES or 150K at RC5. AMD k6-2/300
    does 2.4M DES and a mere 500K RC5. All these boxes are running
    one variant or other of Linux and using 'old' clients.
