I have 6 cpu cores, but very few utilities will use more than one of them at a time. I thought I might write some bat files that split up and ran in parallel for a while then rejoined. I might use it to zip different directories, validate HTML on different sets of files etc, anything heavily CPU eating. I am not aware of any TCC tools for doing this. You need a way to launch a btm file to run independently, and and you need something that will wait until N precesses check in.
