What a difference half a gig makes

At work, they just upgraded my machine from 512 MB to a full 1 GB of RAM.  Man, what a difference.  I can actually have Outlook, Visual Studio, Enterprise Manager, Query Analyzer, Clear Case, TestTrack Pro, and IE all open simultaneously and not suffer any performance degradation.  Before, if I wanted to have more than one instance of VS open at a time, I had to close everything else, including Outlook.

Ah, life is good again.
