hello all: About 50% of the time my compile speed and link speeds are horribly slow. On an average size program when things go well, compile is about 20 seconds and link around 30 seconds. However sometimes the compile time will be 1-2 minutes and the link time 3-5 minutes.
I am using a dedicated laptop with nothing else running in the background. anti virus and updaters and crap like that are turned off.
I am programming on the com port. pentium III 700 mhz 384 meg memory. I realize this is a slow computer, however as I say normally things are fine and I dont mind the 30 second waits, when it goes into long minutes however, something is wrong.
Sometimes I can shut mbasic down, kill the gpasm service and restart and program speeds will be normal again, for awhile.
Any advice would be appreciated.

I am sorry, I created the problem myself. I had the atom manual open in the background at times when the system was linking slowly. On this small laptop it was filling up available ram, and the linker had to swap to harddrive virtual space.
My apologys.

Good info to know though. I doub't most people would have thought of that possibly causing the problem. The manual does have a lot of graphics in it and Adobe isn't known for being super efficient with their coding. :)
