Both were measured using Windows ME's clock. Obviously those both were approximate since the clock doesn't display fractions of seconds. Nevertheless, mine's faster. Of course, once I ported mine to QB, it did take longer than yours (>30sec). This means you've learned how to use QB to your advantage. :)
In short, both programs are quite valid since they do simple tests quite easily. I might be able to match you once I learn how to use PEEK/POKE. That'll take a while though.
