  Very nice.  You and I have a few things to discuss, I think. ;)

  I don't do any "for work" development on my PDP-11s (I'm building a
museum for those) but I regularly do code profiling on sun4c machines.
Yes, for cutting-edge commercial products.  I work in embedded systems,
where every cycle STILL counts, and profiling on a 4GHz processor is
effectively useless.
