Hi Phil,

Are there any "detailed" notes on the problems any where?  Especially the arguments that the testing scheme has problems?  The on-line documentation only mentions some minor problems.

("Lord of the Rings" is my favorite set of books.  I use locations in Middle Earth for computer names.  I usually select the names based on how I feel about the machine, e.g., I use to have a computer call Mordor ;-->).

Take Care,

There are some problems with the ACES, most of which are the all-too-common
software errors that can be worked around.  One can certainly argue that 
there are problems with the general testing scheme and it's validity, but
I still believe that it gives you the best "artificial" performance profile
that you can get.  It's certainly no worse than the (obsoloscent) PIWG set,
and arguably far better.

(I note that your return address specifies "rivendell".  In the same context,
my laptop is named "Galadriel".)
