RE: MOSR Tip (BAD IDEA)
Authored by: Anonymous on Apr 09, '01 07:36:09PM

I ran the command suggested on MacOSRumors. It took about 20 minutes to "prebind" something
like 860 files (running on minimum supported configuration: a 64MB 233 MHz beige G3), some
of which could not be prebound. It neither hurt nor, insofar as I can tell, helped, although
a number of files seemed perfectly happy to be "prebound". The only numeric testing I did
was launching Omniweb (1 min 1st launch, 25 seconds 2nd launch, same 25 seconds after
prebinding.) Omniweb, however, did not appear to need any "prebinding" so maybe that
was a poor test.

Anyway, while I didn't get any kernel panics or other problems, it certainly didn't help as
much as the 256 MB DIMM I threw in there this morning!
