Hi all,

I am in a meeting so must be quick, but here is the configuration file.

The important thing is to increase the maximum memory.  To achieve  
this is different on each operating system.  Somehow you will set -Xmx1G

If you have difficulties with this, please announce to the list with  
your operating system, and tomcat version and we can help.
