we should think about a consistent format for submitting results;  
meanwhile I'll try CSV:

Model;RAM;OS;pdftex version;real;user;sys;Name;remarks
1.25GHz Dual G4 PowerMac;1.25GB RAM; 

(I guess you have "user+sys" and "usage" computed automatically...)
pdftex version details:
pdfeTeX 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)
kpathsea version 3.5.4

I ran it several times with more or less identical results.
And there's an error in the table (row #16): my machine is a G4, not  
G5 (unfortunately).
