Sorry, it is hard to put the whole thesis down in just a few words.  I
am looking at server side CPU intensity.  So javascript and the like
won't work.  My statistics are all on the server and I will be using a
bunch of client machines to pull the web page from the server to get the
server CPU load to be taxed.  I will be using the different frequencies
that are available in the Server's CPU to see the cost/wattage savings
at a given load.
