any1can kernel: CPU0: Temperature above threshold

any1can kernel: CPU0: Running in modulated clock mode

I know of a couple of programs that cause it every time. One is a MUD that I was trying to run two copies of to seperate the "play" site from the "build/code" site. The other is my favorite win/mac/linux strategy game Dominions 3 when I generate a new multiplayer game and have it create a random map. There is a command to restrict the cpu use rather like the nice command. Once I find out the cuplrits I plan to rewrite the scripts accordingly.
