Before you run a PSPP analysis, press the "CRTL" and "Alt" and
"Delete" keys and select "Start Task Manager" and go to the
"Processes" tab and click on CPU so that the little arrow points
This allows you to monitor the workload of your Windows computer.
Then minimize Task Manager and start the analysis in PSPP. Then,
while it says "Not Responding" look at the Task Manager window and
see what CPU and Memory say. The CPU is in percentages and the
Memory is in Kb.
If the CPU isn't always high (while PSPP is running your analysis)
then it means that PSPP is running out of memory. Also if another
program is competing for the CPU, you'll see that (less likely these
days when most computers have multiple cores).

I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe...
functions on fire in a copy of Orion.
I watched C-Sharp glitter in the dark near a programmable gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like Ruby... on... Rails... Time for Pi.
