Out of the Blue

My 'net connection has been troublesome since sometime yesterday afternoon... it's funny how reliable these things have become compared to the past. This flaky connectivity is actually faster and more reliable than on dial up (though those days of whine and modems are actually farther behind me than I tend to recall at first). Anyway, hopefully MaBell will be able to straighten things out today.

I find that very interesting, because I think it is the most bloated software I'd been using.

Maybe with lots of torrents running? I never do more than 2-3 at a time myself, so I didn't notice. I'm on a P4 3.0ghz with 1 gig of memory - it's not top of the line, but I guess I wouldn't notice bloat as much as some. Still, the task manager says it uses up only 2mb of memory, and and has 0% cpu usage on my system...
