Mac 7200/75 (601) 7.5.5 Deschall(newest)/PPPop 235kkeys/sec

Hi all,
The above shows my best time so far. Usually its around 230kkeys. However,
when I wake up and check my log I see:

1:2^29 key pairs starting at 2943E32380010101 Tue Jun 17 20:16:09 1997
1:Key not found. Time: 8184 sec Speed: 131kk/sec Tue Jun 17 22:32:33 1997

I can't see why the rate varies so much, or why it is so low compared to
what I know the capabilities are. Any Ideas? My connection doesn't always
reset on the first try. (PSI.net really blows) Is the log including the
time to reset in the key crunch calc? It would seem not.
During my tests for speed, I found that normal system ext.'s and panels
didn't effect it much. The CD rom polling should be a consistent and
predictable effect. No screen savers or extra pap except what I need to
surf. I'm using standard Deschall prefs and use PPPop to keep Deschall in
front all night. I keep this thing running 24/7 thanks to PPPop and the
suggestion to use it. :)

Kindest,
