Low Resources? What can I do?

Hi Carey,

I am having problems with my computer, I have received this message a number of times: The system is dangerously low in resources. There is not enough free memory to run this program. At the moment I am on the net and have word and outlook open and my system resources are very low, at 4% free.

I spoke to the people I bought the computer from because I am supposed to have 512ram, they assure me that I have plenty, and it must be a windows problem and that I have to reformat my harddrive. I am not that familiar with such things, so I thought I would search to find out why I was having this problem and came across your site.

Are You Using All Your Soul’s Resources?

“Most people live, whether physically, intellectually or morally, in a very restricted circle of their potential being. They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, and of their soul’s resources in general, much like a man who, out of his whole bodily organism, should get into a habit of using and moving only his little finger. Great emergencies and crises show us how much greater our vital resources are than we had supposed.” — William James

Hyper-Threading speeds Linux

The Intel Xeon processor introduces a new technology called Hyper-Threading (HT) that, to the operating system, makes a single processor behave like two logical processors.

We set out to quantify just how much improvement you can expect to see.

Electronic currency using SIM Access Profile

You might remember an ad campaign in which a woman approaches a soft drink vending machine alongside a young male executive. The executive rummages through his pants pocket to find, to his dismay, that he has no change to purchase a cool drink on a hot afternoon. The woman then pulls out her cell phone, presses a few buttons, and a soda can drops down from the vending machine. The ad was meant to show a future of a seamless, interactive world. The SIM Access Profile, released by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), makes such transactions a reality, allowing a consumer to use a cellular device to obtain, for example, a 50-cent soft drink without spending 25 cents on a cell phone airtime charge.

Improve Linux performance

Performance breakthroughs seem to come in two varieties: easy and hard. That’s no platitude; the boundary between the two is surprisingly clear.

When you hear about some — the easy ones — you clap your hands and say, “wow” or “of course” or “slick.” Although in some cases it has taken considerable genius to realize their first application, they’re easy to understand.
