Hi Mark,

The SysInfo function should only return information that is OS
specific.  Things like CPU load and Memory Stats.  So the SysInfo
function should return values, in real-time, up to date, and matching
that of a tool like gnome-system-monitor.  The SysInfo function
running on my distro returns numbers that don't seem to coorelate to
anything I can point to as the culprit.

They aren't random but they aren't accurate ?!?  LOL.
