Normal operating speed is within some epsilon of 100%, if it's like so

datacenter, not in your office. The first time I turned one on, I had
people buzz by my office from the other end of the floor to ask what all
the noise was about.

That'd have been nice on the V210s that $ork has. Of course, LOMlite not
being a crapheap would've also been nice.
