    Re: 482(9+3)=?

    In my head, I didn't change it. That's the way I saw it. Didn't even think there was another way until I saw 288 posted. Perception makes fools of us all at times I suppose :D

    48 / 2(x + 3) = 288
    48 / (2x + 6) = 288 (multiply out the...

    Thanks anonbeat, that seems to have made a difference to the memory usage.

    It hasn't made any difference to the Smart Mode CPU usage though - it will sit at 100% until it adds the next tracks.

    Now, I haven't confirmed this, so I could be talking through a hole in my hat, but could it be that postgres 8.3 is listening on port 5433 instead of 5432, when installed alongside 8.4?
