Just for the statistics - on my 486 I use 5% of the CPU time on long
time average. On faster systems that number is even lower. Higher
numbers usually mean I was running xlock which sucked up the rest. And
at least the 48 bit challenge's client brought these numbers up to
100%. Read: the machine was worth it's money for 13 days ;-)

The numbers from /proc/uptime are sometimes surprising ...
