 I'm NOT thinking small.  I'm thinking efficiency.  You are talking 6
 full orders of magnitude in terms of access time.  If you have the
 money to pay for 25 GB of hard disk, I'm sure you have the money to
 afford a motherboard that can take over 1 GB of RAM.  Even if 1 GB of
 RAM is way more expensive than 25 GB of HD, it's not 6 orders of
 magnitude more expensive.
