Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.
Note to myself, for whenever I get an SSD...

If it would still apply for future technology...
Current good quality SSDs have built-in mechanisms to level the wear on the whole device so that their lives are maximised, but for something like Swap the inherent nature of that requirement will significantly ratchet up the number of Write cycles on any drive that hosts it, and that is still something I want to avoid on my SSD.
In reality it may not be a factor, but I'd rather spend a few dollars on more RAM to reduce swap use (which will significantly increase my machine's performance anyway) than 5 times as much on replacing a SSD worn out prematurely by to much Swapping.
