Well, I mentioned that I have 96Mb of RAM.  Back when I only had 32Mb it was
frustrating to compile any C programs because it would swap so much, so I
bought two 32Mb SIMMS and got a lot happier.  Currently, with Applixware's
main menu up but not running anything, "free" reports:

             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:         94704      91352       3352      75328       2184      26248
-/+ buffers/cache:      62920      31784
Swap:        82496      20952      61544

This is with X, about 15 xterms, several telnet sessions, INND, several news
feeds, the usual bunch of sendmail and majordomo processes running, etc.
