A friend of mine told me about this neat Linux thing: http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/what-is-d ... usage.html

Basically, it allows you to create things that look like files but are actually held in RAM, which can be much faster in some cases.

Impressive, finally a use for all 32 GB of ram.
Python 2.7
Python 3.3
Windows 7 x64
Ubuntu 12.10 x64
One day I hope to use one OS and 1 Python flavor, until that day, life goes on.

Been doing something similar for years. It really does make a difference and it is actually guaranteed to be temporary.
