User: "Ah, a new hard drive means I can increase my swap!"

Java and Firefox:

@noelle Swap? I haven't heard that name in years (16GB RAM)

@Gargron It's an elegant memory management technique of a more civilized age.

@noelle @Gargron Hokey swapfiles and ancient storage are no match for a good stick of RAM at your side

There’s no mystical bit exchange that controls my resource usage! It’s all a lot of filesystem tricks and nonsense

@noelle I swear contemporary software is all either just giant resource hogs or like hyper-minimalist anti-functional bullshit. 😩
