I'm running it on a P2 450mhz w/ Win98. It's been going for 23 hours and
47 min, and is 83.5% done withg its first packet. I'm not sure how
accurate it would be to calculate the processing time off of this though,
since for the first 8 hours or so, I accidentally had it competing with
another distributed processing project (a mersenne primality search).
