Thanks again!

I'm sure Kovid would accept a patch.
But most modern (supported by Calibre) systems have a ton of RAM.
Also 'serving Calibre' is not real intensive, like conversion, so any old PC capable of running a recent OS should do (Linux having a gentle footprint, seem to get more done with less CPU)
