So you having those timings while using a -j5 option ... wow!

I am obviously inhabiting some technological bubble that I wasn't aware I was in.

Not some technological bubble - just more money than sense :-)

My "new" pc that I have yet to install gentoo on and bring into service was bought three years ago. Don't ask ...

The system it's replacing has an Athlon X III processor so is probably about ten years old. And that replaced an Athlon Thunderbird where the on-board memory maxed out at 768MB.

Not all of us need (or can afford) to upgrade our kit regularly.
