Yep, I like to stress test things for you (and pass the stress back to
you) :) And just to keep up with the Aussie stereotype it gives me time
to go off and get a beer and a vegemite sandwich :) The beer also helps
with testing, though it can add the odd eroneous message during the
latter parts of testing.

I guess one of the things that makes it more noticeable is that some
other software only works in banks of 100 memories at a time, so it
takes less time to resynch. That being said, for me personally, the
advantage of being able to insert / delete a row that spans over 100
memories (before a gap is found) far outweighs the time factor and in
reality probably takes less time than having to try and manipulate
memories from one bank to another.
