Yup ... I dunno how long it will last, but currently I am accessin the www without their client, even after a fresh boot.This is what I did, though I dunno exactly why it worked, I guess the client could not send a message back that I had logged off, so i am permanently connected, well, atleast for a while ;)I deleted the annoying hbsbeat.exe file from the sify broadband directory.Then ctrl+alt+deled the bbclient when logged in.Restarted the system.Ah ... thats 8MB less of my 64MB RAM ....BTW, anyone knows whether an older version of the client exists? Which is low on resources? Or better, a dos based text client (like the linux one)? Lets request them to atleast make 3.0 eat much less ram, considering the fact that its job is a simple one ..........

someone should reverse engineer this client and make a better client that actually is user friendly. :(also, if u just terminate the client after logging in, you remain logged in. :confused: i do that when i have to set the download manager to shut down windows after completing a download. the stupid client as for 2 clicks if i shutdown my PC without logging off from sify's server. one of the biggest nuisance imo.

the client takes 8 MB of RAM of 256MB for me. if you have less MB memory it will occupy less and remaining will be in the virual memory.
