This is really just programmers thinking their skills are indispensable. It's absolutely fine to have pride in your skills but always remember, if this was a plumbing website we'd be saying exactly the same things about plumbing.

Ck: The problem with suggestions to move your swap file off the SSD is that users are paying a considerable premium for faster drives so that they get stuff done faster. Putting one of the few things on your computer that it's really actively reading and writing (your swap file is not trashing your SSD because your computer is leaving it well alone) onto a slower drive ruins quite a lot of that advantage. Virtual memory is top of the list of all the things you want on an SSD instead of a hard drive to boost performance.
If you live in a place busy enough to have a crowded coffee shop, especially in the middle of the day, you almost certainly live in a place busy enough to have more than one coffee shop. Before you linger menacingly to make people drink faster try the other one on the corner. I'm one of these people who poke their heads through the door, sigh a heavy sigh and leave. Although I tend to look at the queue for the counter instead of the tables. I leave because I won't get served quickly and there's tons of alternatives.
