Speaking of which, yes it is possible to fake cpu clock speeds and what not,
I found a win32 program which allows you to fake that and all that relies on
the cpu's standards gets sped up, gif animations, games, anything could
think that 30 days have gone past but in real life, it has only been 10
minutes. I could not find the source to this program but I dissassembled it
and from what I can gather it looks like its done in visual c++, if anyone
would like a copy email me off the list.
