Re: NTLK internal/card RAM storage management

Here is what I do with mine.
If I have an application that relies on another
application, then both of those apps are on the same
card. Or in the case of the internet connection, my
NewtHopper and my SimpleMail along with cache are on a
seperate 2mb card. This way I just have to pop in my
"internet" card to be able to do internet stuff, and
that offloads my Newt from storing internet stuff when
I'm not even connected!
Plus, I have a 1mb card of nothing but games and I
have another 1mb card of nothing but Quicken (security
don-cha-know)
I've debated keeping my internet address book entries
on my external card, but sometimes I want to compose
an email to someone when I'm not connected to the net,
and I need the address. (I write it in Notes)
