Testing your memory using memtest

Not yours, actually, but your Mac’s memory. I recently got two 4 GB modules (yes, that’s 8 GB of memory… wow!) and wanted to see if they are OK. Faulty memory modules may cause system crashes and all kinds of weird behaviour. The program that can be used for this purpose is memtest which seems to be freely available with a GPL license but the official download website asks to pay a small amount for downloading it. However, there are alternative download sites and even alternative frontends to the memtest command line tool.
