    Like Chicken Patty said, you'll have them in no time. They'll be shined and polised in waiting.

    the longer you crunch, the more points you will count as "step up"

    steps to a milestone i meant, like you need 10k for the next, so your steps are 1000,2000,3000 etc. am i alone with that?:) i always do it, to determine my actual "crunching speed"

    Yeah, I sort of use milestones as a gauge of speed. I present you another of my mad paint skills to illustrate how I gauge my speed:

    Who cares about "shitty" looks? i7's were made for power, not for poncing around!

    If it causes more problems than it brings joys, not worth the pain with no gain.

    That depends on how you are as a person. I been through a lot of pain already, so I will never be able to bother with anyone causing that much. There's just no need to.
