I have a machine running unstable and it has proved 100.1% reliable
for me, and it is dedicated to be a test bed for anything I want to try
on my work machine.  It is also a home theater and chess crunching.
I updated it a few days ago and think of switching it to testing for a while.

It has been a while, I will check it again.  LXtask takes some resources in itself 
So does screencatcher to compare snapshots or process and resources.

This is a webmail only mail system I use and it has a graphic quoting system
that either the list does not transmit or some mail readers don\t recognize.
I have apologized before and I am doing it again, but it is hard to enter
brackets manually .... although I did it for the few lines above.  Some people
get it and some don't, so intentionally I have responded to all so you can
compare the direct reply.
