I'm running OS8 on a Mac6500/250MHz with 48megs of RAM - lately the system is going from using roughly 15 megs of RAM to anywhere up to 24megs or so (it keeps getting worse!) - sometimes after opening several aps (all have their memory levels set so as to be able to run simultaneously), and sometimes before i open any app. I've tried playing with the cache size, to no avail. I know more RAM would help, but I can't afford it right now, and don't know if the system would eat that up, too! It's really making life difficult . . . I'd rather not go back to OS7.5 . . . Help, please!
