What does "Out of memory" mean?

Postby Bill_M » Fri Feb 20, 2015 3:13 pm

I've seen this a couple of times. I run newsbin, download some files then exit. I leave the computer on but go off and do something else. When I return there is a dialog box that has newsbin in the title with the message "Out of Memory". It does not seem to have any lasting impact but I'm curious how does newsbin bring up a dialog box after I have exited?

I've seen a couple reports of this but it's never happened to me. It sounds like Newsbin doesn't exit and in the process consumes a bunch of RAM. I'm really not sure what's behind it yet.
