Using a Compact Flash card for Paging

My old P3/933Mhz bookpc has been getting quite a thrashing has its maximum 512MB of memory installed, but I'm running 3 Java programs and a couple .Net...along with a few other programs. So it does a lot paging, and even worse when I'm copying files to and from the C drive.

But, it only has the one internal drive....the rest are connected by firewire.

Well, it occurred to me that I might use its PCMCIA slot to help with the disk having it put its page file on there. So, I set out on to eBay to see what the price of a flash memory device that will go in this slot.

I decided on a cheap 4GB CF card and an adapter. ~$50.

I doubt there's any measureable change in application or memory performance, but at least the harddrive light isn't on solid as much anymore. Guess this means I can get back to saving for a Mac, instead of another Windows box to split the load from this box....

Well, just an update. It arrived and it works great. The extra size does make it easier to hold and doesn't get in the way.

I haven't deliberately run it down, but I have missed an overnight charge here and there and it still works through the next day.

Wonder if I'll get a second though....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
