Yeah, results are one of those things I've been meaning to add for
about 6 years..... (A database to hold them, PHP to display them,
forms for submission.) I'd like to do various benchmarks (Ahl, Sieve,
SETI at home, stream_d to measure memory bandwidth, disk_io speed, etc)
for a large variety of machines from the earliest computers to the
present in interpreted, compiled and assembly languages. In my
copious spare time, of course. Next time I go observing and am
waiting on exposures to complete I'll try to put some time into

Blame David Ahl. :)
Thanks for the results, though! Always happy to see them.
