    I read a thread about an apple script that tells you if your ram is 64 bit or not, but of course after much searching i can't find it. Any one know? Also, does it return this info in the "top" command?

    Are you talking about the one that tells you if the iMac G5 BUS is running at 128-Bit once you have installed 2 identical DIMMS?

    Perhaps. I'm not real sure on the specifics, I just know that the ram you install can be checked for complacency.

    Search hardmac.com. It was posted a couple of weeks ago. It's only relevant if you have an iMac G5 with 2 sticks of memory.

    I don't know about you, but I've noticed my RAM acting awfully self-satisfied lately. I mean, I've tried to get it to understand that I need it to adjust more quickly to the needs of my demanding application, but it just doesn't seem to care. ;)

    Are you sure that word shouldn't be 'body'?

    Exactly. I want to know if my ram is happy

    Granted, that could be a reasonable substitute. But then you're assuming that my body is subject to "demanding applications," which aside from chasing two young kids around, isn't so much the case anymore.
