Woohooooo!!!!!

Mav will want to shoot me as I've just lost my 48 day long running time but at the cost of turning off my machine for the first time in over a month, I've had a 2GB ram upgrade!!!
I've gone from 2Gb (1.75 usable due to graphics) to 4GB (3.75) and the difference is amazing!
Currently running:
Seamonkey
Firefox
Cometbird
Internet Exporer
Filezilla
Dreamweaver
Notepad++ (ok doesn't use much ram but every little helps)
Word
Excel
Photoshop
Imageready
Google Earth
Oh and a virtual machine too  Crazy and this is my task manager now!

Yup.. just over 3Gb used!!!  Cheesy
Yeah.. shame the single core CPU is burning it's pins off but hey not much i can do about that lol
and i can still watch youtube... smoothly for once!!!!

A single core on a VM, that's a bit tight isn't it?

Makes me realise how spoilt I am with 16GB usable.

It's more of a hobby for me now but I did edit a couple of short films for the NHS a few years ago.
