>Kernel 32update >http://www.microsoft.com/windows/software/krnlupd.htm >This update resolves a memory leak which occurs when opening and >closing a Socket using the Windows Sockets API. This leak occurs >in the allocation and deallocation of the memory for the socket by the >Windows 95 kernel (Kernel32.dll version 4.00.950). This update >resolves this memory leak in the Windows 95 kernel. >Without this update, running a Windows Sockets application over a >long period of time, especially one which opens and closes a large >number of sockets, will result a significant resource drain. This can >cause the Windows swapfile to grow very large, overall deterioration >of performance, and over time, possible system instability. This >update allows users to better run such applications for long periods >of time without loss of system performance and stability, and without >requiring users to reboot their computers periodically to free system >resources. >Customers who need to run Windows Sockets applications >continuously over long periods of time, especially applications which >use a large number of sockets, will benefit from this update. Anybody planning on running a MUD in in win95 environment should deffinitely pick up this update and watch the Microsoft home pages for future updates. ----- Jason Bell firstname.lastname@example.org "Nuke the gay baby seals for Jesus"
