Opera + Sandboxie = good performance on the EEE, with minimal disk writes

lesson learned: don’t write for half an hour on wordpress, then accidentally navigate away. you’ll lose your post.

Well, short story is best, then: sequester Opera’s activities on a Sandboxie repository on the SD drive of an Asus EEE to save disk writes. Decent performance! I’m almost concerned that Sandboxie is somehow writing to C:\ under my nose. Perhaps the speed increase (over editing Opera’s config to force it write cache, bookmarks, etc. to the SD card) is due to how Sandboxie manages disk writes from within its own system-level driver. Maybe it caches writes in memory until there’s enough to burst onto the SD? Not sure…
