I often use RAM disks for production services. I'm sure that I shouldn't. It feels very lazy, and I know that I'm probably missing out on the various "right" ways to do things.

But it works so well and it's so easy. It's a really difficult habit to kick.

Obligatory joke: "Oh boy, virtual memory! Now I can have a really big RAM disk!"
