[time-nuts] Lady Heather on low power CPU/Linux?

Are you running the v3 beta?  I normally run the program 24/7 on a 300 MHz
laptop here, acting as both a server for two Thunderbolts and a client.
There were some improvements to CPU utilization in the current beta, and its
UI response should be essentially instantaneous.
