This too, is more what I would have expected, slightly faster than my P133.
The original writer (Samual Adams, maybe a distant relation!?) was getting
5000+ seconds for a P133. I think that is slow, considering what others wit=

the different OSs is not very great. Maybe Samuel Adams' cache is
smaller, if this has any effect on the efficiency of the deschal5.
