    Another way would be to run a VM with 4 threads on top of your native client with 4 threads. They will all run at half speed, taking twice as long, but they will think they are running at full speed.

    Interesting puzzle Z!

    Not the same question, but back when they were wrapping up Suduoko I decided to get some WuProp hours. It was at the end and work was hard to come by and when I got it I blew through them. So I UNDERCLOCKED my computers to 2.0GHz (from 4.2) and made the suckers last longer It worked like a charm!

    I realize this reply is coming ~10.5 months later, but I have this question again. Do you double up your hours you get when you run a VM on top of a native client? Has anyone tried this recently?
