I started with a Super Board computer... and then TRS-80, and then Apple II. In those days, the 6502 machine code only has 1 accumulator and 2 registers. Hm... the computer has 48k RAM. If you have money, you can buy a 16k RAM card, and a floppy disk drive for 143k per disc. I can't remember how much the 16k RAM card cost, but it was a luxury. The floppy disk drive was about US$200. But it was very expensive considering it was $200 back in 1983.

comment Will a swap file not slow down the system so much if a Solid State Drive is used?
@DavidSchwartz we can all agree that without a swap file being used, the system is running at its optimal speed. It is when RAM needs to be swapped out and swapped in (to and from the hard drive) that make the apps not running so smoothly

comment Shouldn't we always use Web Optimized for Handbrake?
so what I mean is, if the final file sizes are the same, and there is no penalty for quality whether it is Web-optimized or non-Web-optimized, then why not just make it Web-optimized all the time, so that the file is more universally usable?

@DanNeely yeah to me, this is a very valid question... swap file makes computer slow, but is it less of a concern when we have SSD now?
