Lockups are a general problem on my Performa 630.
This is a 68LC040 machine 66/33 Mhz.
I am using 8Mb memory and another 8Mb virtual.

If you are using the same kind of machine: learn to live with it.
This problem is know at Cornell and White Pine and they are
trying to resolve it.


CU-SeeMe users looking for reflector IP adresses?
My reflector list can be found (amongst a lot of good Mac related
and other stuff) on
Look at the columns section.
