    i cant imagine doing anything that is so complex that you would need to overclock a calculator...

    and some people will come back on this and say - "Because they have nothing better to do!"

    Whatever floats your boat though - it is harmless pretty much, but I think anything that becomes obsessional should be kept in check and with th eway processors can handle things and continue to obey Moores Law O/Cing is nto something that is really done for a practical payback anymore - it is somewhat akin to "showing off" these days, whereas in the past on a budget you really NEEDED to wring out every last CPU cycle you could get your machine to deliver to you - also then chips had wider tolerances and greater potential for overclocking , perhaps...?

    Some, will have something better to do, but you still can. :D

    But yeah, way back when we did it for need. Now we do it for fun and some for "oneupmanship". :p If it's not overly ridiculous, it's still fun.
