Looks like I'll need 3 64MB modules, which would take me up to the
laptop's maximum of 256 MB. About $100, which might be possible sometime
though not soon.

As I understand it, though, most of the apps that I'm looking to use
shouldn't need jack, so it may not be a show-stopper... assuming that I
can just get the USB Audio and Oxygen 8 to happily coexist.
