    I have 3 Safari windows, one of them with 8 tabs open, iCal, and Day One open. It says I have 0.98gb free and about 2gb used unless I'm missing something that adds to 3gb total - I'm probably missing something stupid but I have 4gb RAM so where is my other 1gb? Also isn't that a lot of memory for just those apps to be taking up?
