    Hitting a Hard limit on RAM and trying to remember all those long forgotten tips and tricks for freeing up RAM.

    So long since I used these I have forgotten all the tricks we used to use when computers had 4MB ram. Currently using 2GB but Radarscreen is taking up most of that.

    To start, reducing the number of colours helps significantly.

    Anyone else got any others?

    If the swap file is part of the problem you can speed things up by making it a fixed size and putting it on another drive.

    I turn off swap file. Biggest speedup I've seen. Must have a lot of ram.
