Shrook V071

I upgraded my Shrook today (twice) and it seems like the crazy resource use has been adressed some. Shrook no longer seems hellbent on using up every free bit of RAM on my computer at all times. Howver, the usage still seems high to me. Is there really a reason why this app that does the simple job of reading RSS/Atom feeds needs to use 40M? Good lord, not that long ago that would have been a luxury for your whole computer to have that much. Surely this reader could be slimmed down more on the memory footprint end. Still, at least there is some activity in the right direction. I’ll leave it running for a while and see how long it can go before its resource allocation is such that I have to kill it. Previously, that was about 6 hours on the desktop and maybe a day on the laptop.
