Smile Re: Who's running a lot of programs..??

People keep mixing up the 256 megs of Storage for programs with the 64 Megs Ram. Installing programs in the 256 megs vs the MicroSD card does nothing to the 64 Megs Ram unless the application runs via a startup program or a registry change.

Memory leaks are another issue. I have been struggling to combat memory leaks for the last 6 months. Seem to have it finally battened down. I do use oxios (keep it on the Today screen, but I have found that with the current set of programs I do not see a memory leak anymore. Memory pops back up to 15 megs after I close running programs with Quickmenu X button or Zapit (currently assigned to a press of the Comm Manager button).

Using No2Chems 5060 Rom

Free Memory 15 Megs (stable) (was 24 megs following Rom install prior to all the apps added below)
Program Memory 94 Megs free

Quickmenu give a pretty nice battery/memory readout in the top right corner, may need to drop vistahide battery soon. although I do like the visual reminder.
