I appreciate that while English may not be people's first language,
and most have excellent skills (including Wojciech, don't get me
wrong) there is still a responsibility to make sure you can be
understood. He has been trying to mock me in my understanding of what
he wrote:

>>> amount of disk I/O is a measure of CPU load? seems you are true expert ;)

If you're going to do this, you should make sure that what you WROTE,
not mean, is correct. Otherwise, misinformation spreads and is saved
in these archives for someone to stumble upon.
