Short term memory loss !!

An arch Linux box that I was running on my laptop just ran out of memory

Serves me right for allocating only 128MB RAM for it.

I was not even running a GUI , there was only a ssh server and the network services running. I was installing a few JRuby gems via a ssh session when this suddenly happens.

This highlights a very valid point in today’s world of computing, I feel that today’s software aren’t really very efficiently built.

We are taking the amount of memory that is available, for granted and not writing very efficient software .

    An attention-grabbing dialogue is value comment. I think that you should write extra on this topic, it may not be a taboo subject but typically people are not sufficient to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers

    Is it alright to put a portion of this on my website if perhaps I submit a reference point to this site?
