Remember the one I posted about 3 weeks ago?  Its the same one, but I'm
trying to clean it up a bit.

The data is just coming from Windows SomethingOrOther in NT that saves
this stuff to a .tsv.   :-)

We just got the NT machines saving data for the first time.  All the

I'll trim one tomorrow and send it along.  There are more columns than
I'm showing, but the CPU ones are the ones I need to print that aren't..
