Hi all,

I write a small program to try parallel computing in Erlang.  However, I
find that it only use 110-120% CPU.  I running a dual core iMac with
hyper-threading technology.

In Haskell, I can explicitly point out how many cores in my machine and I
find my program consumes about 380% CPU.

How can I let erlang use more CPU?
