Copy and Memory Use

Here is a little trick that I learned when my Windows 98 was on its last legs.

You see something great on a website, its quite large and you copy and paste. All that was copied is stored and is using memory. Find a few words, copy them and now they are in memory using almost no RAM. Small advantage, yes. But there are many with minimum and smomtimes less than minimum ram, to them this can be important.

A long long time ago I used a program called freemem. Back when memory was expensive and my pockets weren't deep.
