Finally, things can start to run slow...VERY slow...
Biggest issue, after my busride with last.fm never stopping, browsing, all the stuff that kept making me angry before. Then i got home and tried to make a phonecall... The dialer worked *reasonably* responsive.. All of about 10s to bring it up. However, MAKING the call took...an eternity.
Hit the green button to dial...phone starts ringing, friend answers, we start talking.. I look at the phone.. black screen...ITS WAITING FOR THE ANDROID PIC AND CALL TIMER THING TO COME UP...40s after i started the call, got a message saying that one process was not responding, force or wait. at this point, when *that* dialog came out of swap, lo and behold the process actually not responding was working fine behind said dialog...
So yeah. its got its benefits, but very large downfalls.
ON the other hand, I may also try partitioning 128m as fat16, to make certain the small card's wear levelling scheme is able to do whatever it can to help mitigate the destruction-by-swapping.
Fat32 may not have the same wear levelling mechanisms at the card level on anything less than an SDHC, and guaranteed ext2 wont. Raw swap won't either... As far as I remember, flash wear levelling on sdcards is based entirely on how FAT allocates blocks. (someone knowledgeable about the SD/SDHC and wear levelling feel free to chime in!)
