Does giving a developer a slower development machine result in faster/more efficient code?
I/O bound on the slow machine. Still I/O bound at times on the fast machine, but more of a CPU bottleneck. The current build system doesn't like working on more then one lib at once, so some CPU and I/O is left on the floor when there are fewer then 8 files left to compile in any given subproject. As for the coffee, I could drink it faster, but I try to limit my intake, so if I drank it faster I would need another idle time activity.
