comment How to reset the Windows 7 desktop gadgets?
In at least my circumstances, that checkbox can't be unchecked, so this answer doesn't work. Simon's suggestion of just whacking sidebar.exe and restarting it does work though.

comment How Can I Limit the Amount of RAM a Mac OS Application Can Use?
The iStat Menus application is pretty great for watching memory, disk, CPU, etc. usage. You can also use the top command-line utility to look at active processes.

This doesn't work. I did ulimit -m 200000 and ulimit -v 200000 then ran an application via /Applications/ABC.app/Contents/MacOS/ABC. I then watched the memory climb well over 500 MB before I killed the process.
