In posting timing comparisons for Mathematica operations, 

please be careful to use ACTUAL ELAPSED TIME 

from pressing enter key until completion of operation.
Do *NOT* use the Timing command without explicitly saying so.
Do *NOT* trust the front end timings -- verify them with a stop watch.
Do *NOT* give comparisons of your times with others unless others have
stated explicitly their timing methods so you can be sure they are comparable.
