But i have noticed some slow down with my work stuff. Today I realized my CPU is actually costing me money at this point.
For work I customize accounting software and I took on a project with a larger client, with the reports that i have to make they can get very large and demanding on the CPU. With my current setup one of the things I have to test out takes 15 min to run, on my client's computer they are used to 30 and when we have this running on their server it is only about 5 min. But with security restrictions I have to demonstrate on my computer before they let me touch their server. So I cannot in good faith charge my client for all the hours of waiting and testing, so the way I see it if it can cut the processing time down by even 10% it would actually end up paying for its self.
