I find that running server/slim.exe is much much faster to start up than
I guess this is because it doesn't start up the web interface?
Also I couldn't get SlimServer.exe to start up minimized.

I seem to recall running the perl script used up quite a bit more

I tend to prefer using perl with the scripts on any platform. Mainly it

platforms. I also tend to think the server reacts a bit faster when its
perl script.
