Hot babe

by Volker Weber

Here is a system utility built by and for nerds who only know girls with a last name of Jpeg. :-) Available for Linux and Windows:

Hot-babe is a small graphical utility which displays the system activity in a very special way. When the CPU is idle, it displays a dressed girl, and when the activity goes up, as the temperature increases, the girl begins to undress, to finish totally naked when the system activity reaches 100%. Of course, if you can be shocked by nudity, don't use it!

I tried it with running multiple VMware VMs but it didn't help.

But.. just right-clicking some windows folder took the system to max CPU usage :-/

PS: Oops, i really just downloaded it for technical reasons.

Windows also generates 100% CPU load with

C:\>dir /s

I find if you grab a window and "fan" her with it, her clothes disappear...

*ahem*. Back to work...

Sounds like the first good reason NOT to buy a faster computer :-)

If you open the scientific calculator of Windows and calculate the factorial (n!) of a large number (give it at least 10 digits), you will also get a 100% for quite some time.
