okay, i'm just going to clamp down on this while it's still fresh in my mind... ie, before i go to bed.

boot time after dumping unneeded services: 2 minutes, 20 seconds; 72mb of physical memory used following clean boot.

now i notice some inefficiences... that is, my computer's POST takes close to 35 seconds (turn off full memory check, check change boot order to exclude cd-rom and floppy). windows messenger is loading on boot (and takes 10,352kbytes of mem according to task manager), and two apps related to the graphics card. i'm ditching that 440kb atomic time clock app in favor of just looking at the dang clock next to my keyboard, turning off the windows time service, and removing the clock from my taskbar...

let's test with another boot and see how well we've done.
