cant really reply to your question but id just like to say G3 is what im using and it seems to use 32 megs of Ram pulling 3 downloads. im not sure if this is high or not.. emule sucks 40 megs... but also pulls resources from my proccess.
I don't see why ppl use bittorrents... I can't get those things to download faster then let's say 10kb/s ... while irc downloads @ 200/300 kb/s... Does that software need some special settings? Router config?
if you want to use ABC I have used a lot of the different builds and finally went back to 2.6.4a...it is the best one I Have used so far and doesn't jog my computer down at all...if you can give it a try...you can find it on sourceforge where they have old builds
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
