        Or, just as likely, you've got a system administrator that knows
you run a mud, and has put you under a memory limit, or the admin is
really good, and has a limit on everyone.
        I have noticed this message popup before when I mixed memory
chip-types (different manufacturers) - I can only assume that one of them
was bad, but it was sporadic, so I never tracked it down.

        Chances are though, you've just not got enough memory.
