Beats me.  Anyone got any old benchmark scripts I can use to simulate
programmer activity while I go down the pub?

In my case, you'd have to wire the food preparation island in the
middle of the kitchen up to the PC.  It's an ideal height to lay out
papers, designs, etc., and I spend quite a bit of the day prowling
round it.  Most of my actual coding is done offline - SAS/PC and
Object REXX for Windows are wonderful things.  Keeps the line costs
down, too.  One of those passive infrared movement detectors might
be just the thing.  Or a load cell in the pencil tray to detect when
they're picked up and put down.

I remember one of the busiest programmers I ever saw turned out to be
writing a DOS utility package that he then left the company to sell.
