Man, I'm glad I missed the previous one -- wish I had missed it altogether.

Say.... nice PC. Did you have one "back-in-the-day"?

Yes, my first computer had 8K of RAM. The manual was next to useless.

First thing I programmed on it
10 input "What is your name " a$
20 print "Hello " a$
30 goto 10

Run

Hee hee.
Why not this :
30 goto 20

Since it is the only thing running and using < 12.5% of the CPU, I wonder, is there any way to make it use all 8 CPUs?

No, Seti apps are not multithreaded, so it's only WU/core.


Thanks.

All that's missing is a dog and some junk cars on the lawn.
