Yea.... and then compare that to the multitasking of a Quad core, 8 thread processor running at 4GHz and see how well your Apple seems to multitask then

Yes, they can. Considering they use Core2 processors.

Looks that way. Had a car come over yesterday for a MPS install. He'* getting 5+ degrees of KR and wants to go to a 3.6" from stock. Told him he better deal with the KR first, but he insisted. So I started pulling the pulley. Hmm, that'* looks small for stock. Sure enough, it has a 3.3" That might explain why his new stock length belt was slipping and he had all that KR

When I'm working on someone'* car, my phone sits somewhere ringing. As many know I don't typically log any internet time during the weekends either.

At first Gunner and Ville'N were both saying " uh dude..your phone" after the 10th time of me ignoring the phone, they understood it would take too much time to answer it constantly.

I'm to the point where getting to threads can be a challenge on any of the 4-5 forums I frequent. There'* pm'* waiting, (just reloaded AOL messagner) that'* flashing, phone is ringing ... and folks are stopping in. I've had people I don't know pull in the driveway and ask for help. lol.

Some days it is way too much and the phone, email, and internet are ignored so something can get done. At the same time.. there'* those times were someone needs help bad and answering is key. Like we've both done to each other..lol
