CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.53GHz
Compiling ruby, in particular. (I can't get RVM to integrate with tk
properly, so have recompiled a bit.) Also, for some reason thunderbird
pegs the CPU when downloading messages. Plus, the odd flash website
(flash is such a hog it's absurd). Generally, the CPU is at ten percent
or so, or even less.
Since it's a single-core, regular type, old CPU I don't think the
hardware is capable of the throttling you mention, though.
