I use RAM and CPU-monitoring utilities as I s'poze most here do..I've been screamernetting since last Thursday, and have seen my "Free" RAM go from a slivver to a huge chunk, even during the same Scene...

Can't figure out why the Free RAM increased so dramatically..I've been sitting here all day doing other things, like surfing, FM Pro, e-mail, chat, etc..

The other apps I've been using make minimal use of RAM (ie, less that 50 MB per).

Anyone know why a SN session would suddenly seem to "liberate" a bunch of RAM?

Some facts: each SN node (2) is using 164MB of RAM, and my total RAM is 2.5GB.
