My computer at work takes about 20 minutes to restart. Partly because it's slow, partly because the startup procedures it goes through. I just bought a high-spec laptop, but haven't started using it as my main work computer yet. Hopefully my company will buy me a better desktop (which could have the same specs as my laptop for a fraction of the price).
its all relative. The laptop I'm moving from took between 15 and 25 minutes to boot, the new one is far sharper even with an encrypted hard disc The only down side is that it boots faster than I can make coffee :-P

How damn frustrating it is to not be able to univote you for not including me in the list of beauty-contest finalists for the coveted title of "Lounge Excommunicate."
Of course that's really just a macho-pose masking a fake threat: underneath that: I am hurt, hurt, hurt.
But, I will take this as: an opportunity to re-think whether "fame," or, "notoriety," on the Lounge is a goal I should aim for, and, whether: 'tis the "milk of human kindness," or, "sheer obnoxious depravity," better lubricates ascension into Lounge stardom.
So, I thank you for that.

Though you're obnoxious enough to deserve a place on that list you just don't have the nescessary posting frequency. This reasoning might change if the deciding metric would include things like "extremely long posts without any significant meaning".
So yes, I do agree that you, above all, deserve a place on that list.
