Thinking about it, I used to have one that used JNI to get access to a Windows 
high performance multimedia timer. Clock ticks in the micro-second range. I 
have no idea where the code is now, but I could probably recreate it.

I was working on comparing CORBA, RMI, COM and local VM calls. Plus local 
machine vs networked.  No real surprises in the answers. But having hard 
numbers gave me nice stick to beat developers with when they wanted to create 
a remote String/Integer/Double/etc implementation.
