Random Quote #25 topic: miscellaneous, It has everything that doesn't fit in other categories.

A few years ago I visited a computer store and saw a computer equipped with this
new Microid Research BIOS which was unfamiliar to me. I would like to know
something about the performance of this BIOS, so I asked if it was a fast BIOS.
"Well yes!" he answered, "Take a look at this!" He rebooted the computer and
pointed at the "Press DEL to enter SETUP" message, which was on the screen for
five seconds. Then he rebooted the system again, entered the BIOS, and decreased
the "Display enter setup message time" from five seconds to one second, left the
BIOS, and rebooted the system once more. While it was booting, he pointed again
at the "Press DEL to enter SETUP" message which was now on the screen for just
one second. "See how fast it is?" he said proudly. "I increased its speed by a
factor of five! Is this a fast BIOS or what?"
