    im only using a console application, so doesnt need to load anything on startup

    While we are talking about timings here's an utility which can be usefull for new users before they are familiar with linux and they wish go further more.

    Download or install ntsysv which is a fast and easy way to play with services without having to really care where are "hidden" the services with the associated runlevels
    It runs from console. I remember that on my first steps with linux i appreciated this utility.
