Re: Best USB stick for the slug
Are you swapping to the USB stick on this slug? If so, it may not be
the right medium for you. The Flash RAM used in USB sticks has a
lifetime limit of approximately 100,000 - 1,000,000 write cycles
If you're not swapping, you should still take a look at a recent
thread in debian-boot on the subject of the "relatime" mount option,
which will drastically reduce the number of writes to the filesystem
for updating an inode's "atime" field. This may also help make your
mail system feel snappier. I believe it requires a kernel version
more recent than that available with Debian "etch".

One of my slugs HD was on the verge of breakdown and i decided to
go and get an USB stick instead to make it less succeptable to HD
crashes as it runs my mail server.
However i bought a Sandisk Cruzer Titanium (2GB) with 15MBs/9MBs
read/write but i must say it feels really slooooooow. So i
seriesouly thinking of getting another one.
So I'm really curious to find out what you guys have for experience
in this matter before i buy another one
