There was more to this, but I skipped it since I was busy with other things.
To put it in perspective, what I used to do on 2 MB of RAM still runs better on 8 GB of RAM, however, not much.
It’s optimized to run at top speed on 2 MB of RAM and there is not much difference at larger amount of RAM and faster processor speed except for larger file size.
The largest file size back then was less than a Gigabyte of data.
That is one of the reason the larger files are not compatible with older operating systems.
The hard disk size was also a limitation, as the operating system would not install on the larger hard disk.
I would really like to create and include a memory management resident program , or something that would do enough analysis to optimize memory use, and calculate other program usage.
So, when the data is overloading the remaining RAM, it could stop to request processor usage, and save any data required in case of crash.
I currently pay $476 storage for one of my locker and my total cost will be over $726.
I will most likely have to pay $500 for that next month as well…
Needless to say, I also have to do inventory work for it as it’s what I have studied and worked on for all those years.
