LAN Speed Test now builds the large test files on the fly in 1 MB chunks instead of the whole thing at once.  Now you can test with an unlimited sized test packet and LAN Speed Test will still only take a maximum of 10 MB of your RAM!  This works when testing to a shared folder or to the LST Server.
