It all stems from having a psychopath for a boss and NO IT budget, at least when I need something. It goes like this in my workplace: if I identify a need, boss will analyze it with a microscope and after a lot of contemplation, suggest a workaround that DOESN'T involve expenditure. Forget that he will order something extravagant if HE needs it. He's actually using a 32-inch Benq gaming monitor to read *drumroll please* EMAILS!
So I got this SSD for my work PC when he was in a good mood and my pitch was, SSDs are supposed to last longer than HDDs. Now I don't want to go and shoot myself in the foot by negating that very benefit by burning out the flash cells with unnecessary writes. Don't ask what will happen if something untoward does happen. It will involve a lot of shouting (except I won't be the one doing it). You don't wanna get screwed by a psychopath if you can avoid it. Trust me on that. Anyway, the lack of pagefile hasn't hurt me so far and I would like to sleep better at night knowing that precious flash cells are not getting hammered. And backup plan? Ha! I'm just lucky being paid on time.
