Thanks to all who replied to my query about the "normality" of rnorm. I am
using R 1.1.1 (the version released last week) under Windows 98. It has
been unusually hot here and I noticed that the CPU fan seemed to be running
at high speed for a long time. The CPU probe that I use to monitor the
temperature emitted a warning shortly after I sent off the email. After
shutting my system down, letting it cool, and then rebooting, all seems
well with rnorm. Since I have seen some pretty weird results with Excel
whenever the CPU overheated, I am assuming I just encountered a similar
phenomenon while running R.
[These new laptops running low voltage mobile PIII CPU's still run super hot]
