Dear lord...35mb at boot?  You mean, you're using up that much memory
before there are any players in the game?!  You might want to look
into rewriting your code for efficiency.  Okay, truthfully, it's fully
possible for a CircleMUD to use 25mb, and it's not too outrageous of a
figure.  But I would still look into cutting down memory usage.  I
sometimes think that I have written the most memory efficient code I
can...and sometimes I have.  Other times (and it seems more often
these days), when I look back at the code, I realize I can do quite a
few things to speed it up and cut down memory usage.  It's worth a
second look.
