Frustration and Laptop Power Cords

A note for a future Erik: Very little is more frustrating than forgetting your laptop power cable at work and sitting there watching your simulation run at half-speed while you try to save enough power for aforementioned simulation to complete.

Edit @ 10:30 PM: Thankfully I own the world's largest battery -- I was able to get my runs done before my computer decided to give up the ghost. I find myself wondering if the Core Duo processor is designed to be able to speed-step the cores independently? My algorithm was single-threaded, so one of the Cores was idling the whole time.
