I just looked at Glenn's site '' but I see no reference to my
fork, where did you see that?

About. It's hard to give an exact figure since my core grabs all the memory it needs on startup
whereas std. core grabs memory as needed via malloc(), thus, std. core requires a lot of 'free memory' to run, whereas my 'free memory' is really *free* -- you can use all of it for other things like TSR's and the core is unaffected. But, with std. core, if 'free memory' drops below a certain point, sometimes it will crash, sometimes just slow down, so it's hard to make an exact comparison. Std. core has a 'red zone' with free memory below 160K IIRC, but I have none, since 'free' is really free.
