<<I think timing[10001!][[1]] will take about 100 seconds on a IIcx

Todays machines are below 1 sec.
Power Tower Pro 225:         0.783 sec
Pentium pro 200(linux):       1.04 sec

Yep, I get 0.8 sec on my Power Tower Pro 225 for that factorial operation.
How do you get the 3 digits of accuracy on the Timing?
