OFF TOPIC: CPU Speed Affecting Apps and Games

I still have an old copy of Blade Runner I tried to run on a P-III 450;
built for a 386/20, with the CPU speed/game speed deal. Finished the game in
about 12 seconds. Gave me the impression of blistering fast computing. I was
proud of my 450 Mhz; don't need no stinkin' 1.4 GHz box when I can finish an
entire game in 12 seconds! Couldn't tell if I won or not, though.
Have an antique copy of the Ancient Art of War, 8088 class CPU speed based.
As soon as it launches, one big fat race condition clicks in and that's all
We code better and smarter today, though, don't we.
