Hi Rob.

MemoryUsage is telling you are using 95,7% of RAM allocated. If you
want, on Unix/Linux by example, you can start from command line with
this command:
arrigo at aleph Fuzzy-Squeak]$ squeak -memory 70M squeak.image
with -memory option you can tell to your VM to allocate 70MB of RAM in
executing your squeak.image.
I don't know how is it on windows or Mac.
