I offer a thanks to the respondents who explained how the client 'should'
work. My original message was based on my experience of having found my
set of Macs all stalled out waiting for the server to respond. My building
at Apple.com did not lose it's power, so I was interpreting this
client-hang as a possible cause for apple.com's drop in the standings
coupled with the power outage.

I will start testing the effect of the math lib extension provided by
motorola and post my findings if no one else has already tested this.
Although Andrew's assembly language routines may not call the special
funtions provided by this extension, it could be possible that other OS
processes may be assisted by the lib and indirectly boost performance of
the DesChall client by allowing it more CPU cycles.
