              The development assistant and the collections manager are doing this big report + 5 year plan for both museums. 60+ pages lots of photographs. I'm worried that they may crash the computer - running out of memory (it has happened before). If I add the size of the Word2000 file + (the average size of a photo (224KB) X number of photographs), that will give me an estimate of the total size that I can compare to the 96 Megs of RAM on the machine they are using. If it is too big (read close to say the RAM because she has lots of programs running in the background), then the development assistant should subdivide the report into different files (easy to do it has sections), before she starts adding photographs, right? I have a special ed group tomorrow and I just know they are going to call me in a panic about this during the field trip. I'm also going to tell them to back it up to disk before doing anything else.
