Hello to everyone,
I am coming back to pskmail after a small hiatus. I see this wonderful program 
has progressed quite a bit and it looks to have many new features. I have been 
curious as to what the minimal hardware requirements are since this has been 
upgraded to java. I have tried it on two of my laptop, on being an old 800Mhz 
with 512 Megs (winXP) of ram and another being the XO Laptop by OLPC, which is 
a 433Mhz (Debian) with 256 Megs ram. I have not notices the computers to slow 
down when fldigi and pskmail are operating but I do notice that the link 
between the two programs seems to become congested or just stops after a few 
connects or pings. I do not notice any errors within the terminal of the linux 
box when either program is running. I was wondering if anyone else has run into 
this problem. This has been a wonderful program since the beginning of it 
inception and I hope to incorporate it into my emergency / backup 
communications. This software was very handy when
 I lived in South Dakota and the Power/ telephone would die. I was still able 
to communicate with people on the outside of the effected area.
keep up the good work
