Description

Paged and Nonpaged Pool.

Mark's posts are stellar. The detail, the clarity, the usefulness. Definitely one of my favorite technical Windows-related blogs. The post I linked to specifically is incredibly interesting given that it details a rare, but very painful problem and in process teaches us about some fundamental properties of the Windows kernel (see his other Pushing the Limits posts on Physical and Virtual memory).

    I started 800 instances of notepad.exe with a .bat script and it froze windows. I hard reset then it bluescreened on boot, that was quite strange. What limit was I pushing besides something stupid and trivial Tongue Out.

    Mark's blog is great.
