      I found that when rendering I am using between 80 and 100 percent 
of CPU.   Also zero swap and 57% of memory.  I will get more ram today 
Probably 4 G .  Does anyone think this will make a difference?  I now 
have one gig and really only 875 that is usable.    If I can figure out 
how I thought maybe I could raise the allowable temperature of the 
processors . Does that make any sense.   Thanks, Doug
