	I am posting a more recent list of dhrystone benchmarks to
net.sources.  I had intended to do this only once a month as long
as there were any new, interesting results.  It hasn't been a month
since I last posted, but I am doing so now for the following reasons:

	1) A veritable flood of results have arrived.
	2) I have made changes to allow multi-user systems to more
	   accurately get the figures.  Originally, I had only
	   used this on single-user systems, or on systems where
	   I just dropped into single-user mode.  This is obviously
	   impossible for most people.
	3) I have detected some amount of 'see my machine X beats Y'
	   repostings by people.  Well, now they'll find out that
	   'Z beats X and Y :-)'.  Please, folks, just send me
	   the results, in the same format used in the table. One
	   line per configuration, with footnotes for 'special
	   considerations'.  I'll post the whole mess periodically.
	4) Future postings will contain only the list of results,
	   not the source code.

If you have trouble e-mail'ing to me, pick up TPC and call me.  It
should only take a minute or two to record your latest run.

P.S. Anybody at Intel with access to that 386 Unix box you guys happen
to have laying around- care to tell me what kind of dhrystones it cranks?
