I am sure these will prove to be some good reading. I was looking into the NMI function on my Umax board, and wound up learning a little about MicroBug. But I stumbled across these links. Thought someone else might like to do a little late-night tech reading.

This is all about the Apple System Error Handler:

And this is a lot of info about how the Mac uses memory, including VM:

That's all. No troubles here. Just a little dose of education. Night all!

Oh, AND....everything you needed to know about PRAM. Nice to know it takes 2 bits for the PRAM to remeber how many times my menu blinks when I select an item. http://macgurus.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks DSM! Lots of interesting info there. Guess that explains the speed boost from keeping all that extra stuff disabled. http://macgurus.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
