Memory, memory

Ah... That's it. The easiest upgrade that can greatly speed up any computer is memory. Here in the Geekzone HQ I work on my desktop (Pentium 4 HT with 2GB RAM) and sometimes on my Tablet PC (a Toshiba M205 with 1GB RAM). But the machine servicing Windows Server 2003, Exchange Server 2003 SP2,SQL Server and Newsgator Enterprise Server was running on a very limited 1GB RAM. But don't worry this is not the Geekzone live server, only the development and testing environment. I went to town and purchased 2x 1GB DDR400 RAM for this desktop, replacing 2x 512MB DDR333 RAM in the process. It is now running with 2.5GB RAM and it's so much happier... Not so much because of the Exchange Server - this is not a big deal, since it's only servicing 3 or 4 accounts, mainly for testing. But the Newsgator Enterprise Server manages a few hundred RSS feeds (about 600), dumping everything into a SQL Server database. And this is the same development server we use to test all the new Geekzone features, including this Geekzone Blog tool, so you can understand why I was really in need of speed on this box.
