Okay, I couldn't resist on this one.... after clicking a link to a photo-intensive page, my laptop with its measly (????) 1.5 GB RAM came to a grinding, swap-induced crawl. First, I killed the tab for that page. Okay: time to start killing the few aps which were running.... leaving only firefox, with a few innocuous tabs still open, including my training diary which I wanted to finish updating. Then I dropped firefox.
Okay, so I screwed up that screen grab big-time. But if you could actually read it, you'd see 940 MB freed up by the death of the bloated firefox beast. Wow.
Okay, vent done. Back to cycling....
