Slow startup? Bootchart reveals all

thanks for tip, i saved a full 10 seconds off my startup by turning off things i forgot i had installed and wasn't using anymore, like tor, privoxy, mysql server and proftpd.

if you're running ubuntu, also consider removing the "quiet" and "splash" arguments from your grub settings. it wont be a pretty startup process, but those services still steal CPU cycles.
