hi, i was just wondering if the load avg is reported correctly in current.
i am curious, because for some reason, my load avg is constantly at about
.10 or so, whether i have 2 or 75 processes.  if this is so, does this not
mean that the system is using(wasting?) 10% of my cpu time even when idle?
if so, why?  most systems that i have used are usually at 0.00 when idle..

just curious,
