   Oh, I said it was only a feeling, not anything factual. And I agree
with you: OS X does perform better the more memory you give it --
especially with a slow ol' ATA drive. But it does strike me that the
kind of work I ever did on one of those computers (file server,
NFS-to-AppleShare gateway, FileWave server, etc.) was pretty
workmanlike, just like a pick-'em-up truck you haul with more than you

   Though I hear there's a NASCAR circuit just for trucks....
