I got me a new-to-me toy for $1000.  It's a dual 6 core Xeon. But what 
really appealed to me was
MiB Mem : 128844.0 total, 121162.3 free,   5763.2 used,   1918.5 buff
MiB Swap:   8192.0 total,   8192.0 free,      0.0 used. 122121.8 avail

     PID USER      PR  NI    VIRT    RES    SHR S  %CPU  %MEM     TIME+ 
COMMAND
    1479 minecra+  20   0   11.3g   4.9g  29444 S   7.6   3.9 459:17.72 
java -Xms4096M -Xmx4096M -jar /opt/msm/servers/+

128GB memory. :) It's pretty wild that I can give 4GB to minecraft and 
that's only 3.9% of the memory.  I think the 8GB swap space looks almost 
silly by comparison.

I use a Pi for my firewall and it's not able to keep up. I get 10Mb/s 
through it, but the boxes on the other side of my firewall are nearing 
100Mb/s.  So I was going to replace my linux server with the new box and 
repurpose the old server as my firewall. But the day the new box 
arrived, the old one died. I guess she was jealous.

Congratulations!

128MB ram!  **sigh**

Naturally, ha! The old computer has a proximity detector; it sensed the new box
and quietly bowed to the superior machine. Ah, the wonders of modern technology.

I call that "just-in-time computing" :-P

Why would you have a swap space on that machine, or on any modern 
machine. I haven't created swap partitions (or files) on any decent 
machine since the early 2000's.

Suspend to disk requires it.

(Granted, 8 GB swap on a 128 GB system won't work for that.....I'm just 
stating that that's a reason to create a swap partition)
