I picked up on Ham's invocation of magic to make his views of how life arose work. It is a bit of a contradiction, but only for those who don't believe in magic.

Thanks to your T-shirt I now have scenes from Monty Python's "Search for The Holy Grail" flashing through my head.

I'm afraid pessimism is the worst and is only a little better than optimism.

What happens when you stop drinking water and a #UNICEF  web app to help donate fresh water to people in need.

Why 10 exactly? What was the metric that was used to determine this value, trial and error? I mean, trial and error is fine, I'm just curious.

+ED209 Well There is always adding more ram, 512 is the minimum for most linuxes. But if you cannot add more then play with the settings and see what is faster for you, I would try 80 and see how that goes. Also there is zram (some linux's have this by default like lubuntu), If your distro does not have this then check it out. Normal swap uses Hard disk space, zram uses part of your ram as a compressed block device to swap with. Ram is about 100,000 times faster then the hard disk, the trade off with zram is that it is compressed so it does require a little processor power to compress and decompress.

To give an example of zram in use and how it helps, android 4.4 now has zram built into it. Zram also helped my motorola cliq (android 1.5, 2009) smartphone, it had a 528 mhz processor and 256 mb ram. So zram does work on very weak devices (computers).

To install it on any *buntu type:

sudo apt-get install zram-config

and it sets itself up automatically. to check it type:

cat /proc/swaps

and you should see it in there, may require you to reboot before you will see it. Other distros you will have to look it up. It also uses swappiness so you will still want to find the best setting.
