I get virtual memory errors all the time - sometimes even my sqlclient crashes with the message "not enough memory to complete operation". I never knew that error existed until now (btw, I'm not even using my local sql instance - that's using a remote instance - aaarrrggg!). I have asked and asked for more ram, but no luck. I have to shut down my web browser and VS instances all the time to clean up and start over. I even tried taking extra ram from machines of employees who recently left - but it wasn't compatible with my machine. So not only does everyone else have MORE ram than I do, but its better ram!
