It is difficult to create a precise non-tautological statement in English without the support of specialized tools such as jargon. Furthermore, it is likely that a pedantic geek will enjoy pointing out the flaws in any attempt to do so.

It can go with any Amiga accelerator and say for example the accelerator is 50Mhx then you can triple that to 300Mhz If 14 Mhz then you get of course 84Mhz


Tripling 50MHz or 14 MHz... on my calculator it says:
50*3=150
14*3=42
Where do you get the figures 300 and 84?

He of course means doubly tripled clock speed of the accelerator. :-P

I also have one of these devices that I whipped up in the back shed yesterday. It's sitting right next to my hens teeth collection and rocking horse wheels. :crazy:

Try this one... works well at work on most IT flunkies... take a screen grab of your normal desktop (workbench), then load it up as your wallpaper, hide all the icons, then call the IT guy a say "I click but nothing happens!".
