Recent Memory Upgrades

Recently, I upgraded the memory in both of my Linux machines.

It started, because due to my network changes, I had new services I needed to run on my already overworked Windows 2000 machine. Namely, I added WallWatcher(and WW2DShield) and DirectUpdate.

Since this machine is i815 based, and has its maximum 512MB installed...and thrashes quite regularly....I decided to dump PRTG from it and go to running MRTG on one of my Linux boxes. Not really sure I know why I had put off running MRTG for so long, etc. Just lazy I suppose.

Thinking that this was going to put a strain on the machine, and since it was on my list to upgrade its memory...I went onto eBay and tracked down another 512MB to stick into this machine. That arrived on Tuesday and brought the machine happily up to 1GB of RAM.

Though MRTG didn't really put that much strain on the memory, so I didn't really need it. Though as another move to reduce memory stress on my Windows box. I turned off TV Listings for the Windows DVArchive instance, and run it on my Linux instance. I pretty much use that feature to get daily emails on potential conflicts. Though it seems to have a bug of telling me about conflicts that don't exist.

Like if the show airs twice on one night....like 7pm and 11pm...and I record the 7pm first run episodes each week only on that day at 7pm. It'll tell me that 11pm show conflicts with some other show that I am recording. Of course, I knew that....that's why its scheduled the way that it is. But, that's just a minor thing. Better to have the information than not.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
