I've upgraded to 2GB RAM.
The problem I was writing about has not been solved by the increased RAM and the long wait times have been steadily increasing.
More often the brain runs faster now with the increased RAM, but as it grows in size, the slow is getting even slower -now taking 2 to 3 minutes accessing the hard drive and totally locking up PersonalBrain during that time.
No other programs on this machine have problems.
In Instant Search and in the new Thought creation window, sometimes if I am slow to type, or if I mistype and then backspace to make a correction, or less frequently even if I type correctly and quickly (its seems inconsistent from my end), the problem occurs. I guess the software searches through all Thought names for a match of the relatively few letters entered, which I guess could take a long time, but the delay is a show stopper.
I think a user should have control to abort that task if its going to effectively disable the software. Is there a way to do this?
I'd like to know what RAM and processing speed people are running their larger brains on? Mine is at about 20,000 Thoughts, 2GB RAM (was at 1GB), 1.66GHz double core. "Jerry" is at 100,000 Thoughts. What does Jerry run on?
