More channel space?

Perhaps we can get more channel space out of this deal. :-)

More AvantGo Channels!

You are absolutely right! There are so many great channels, but I can only load 22 of them on my IIIc. And I still have 3 1/2 megs of empty ram. Seems to me it shouldn't be that hard for AvantGo to load pages up to available memory. What gives? Why the 1 meg limit?
