wolfger - surely even you take a break every now and then. Perhaps to drink coffee, have a bathroom break, or dress up as a knight and hit people with a long stick?

    I'm busted... Yes, I do have a life away from the computer, occasionally. I sleep, and I dress up like a medieval warrior to hit people with sticks. But I would save more power by turning my computer off... Which I don't do. :-(

    As for drinking coffee Mountain Dew, and potty breaks, neither of those lasts long enough for the power save mode to be invoked.

[Corion]: ... make already does, except for files instead of programs. But maybe with some /proc hackery, that could be eliminated and one could use plain make :-D
[choroba]: systemd just makes is asynchronous
[choroba]: so, make -j
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah - but when writing Perl to save time (instead of having fun), it helps to look whether you're actually saving time ;) Why spend 5 minutes doing manually what you can spend three years automating? ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Oh, yeah :-D
