OT: Why I need two CPUs :)

Following the release of "More" for the mac, I found that switching machines (being paid to work on an NT workstation) just doesn,t cut it.
Please take a look at ftp://mambo.bauing.uni-weimar.de/pub/temp/whydualcpu.jpg
to see why I am rather glad to have a dual-CPU machine :)
What happens is the following:
Running is an NT WS 40 with Real Player (hey, it's Sunday), a Macintosh Emulator called "BasiliskII" with an Ethertalk connection to our server, a VMware virtual machine just starting up a Win98 installation [all network stuff _is_ working!] allowing me to test software install programs without reinstalling a whole machine everytime it is wrecked again (just copy a backup file of the installation and voila!, brand new installation. I love it and will buy it...) and some other stuff...
just to let you know this can be done, and sometimes even serves a serious purpose... :)
