Default your start up times?

Wasnt sure where to put this but thought it would be interesting if everyone timed there pc's on startup. I.E press power button and start timer and then when windows is fully loaded and the hard drive stops working stop the timer and the post your times.

Just abit of fun and see whos the fastest

Yeah, it changes things quite a bit if you have multiple profiles have have to select one first or if you have to enter a password.

I think about 2 minutes.

I've got tons of GUI programs that need to load.
For me 2 mintues isn't that long. I guess I could stop all the GUI stuff from starting at windows start, but then i'd have to manually start them and that would be more annoying then waiting 2 minutes.

So, I think i'm ok.
