No space. At times Unix is just as fussy as IBM JCL :)
Agreed on the value of `noatime`. It made a huge difference
in responsiveness on an old 486sx25 laptop.

Agreed. But on some mobos, it doesn't matter. Then I prefer the
furthest slot from the RAM controller. Sure, signal time-of-flight
is a few ps longer, but at least the bus is terminated and will
have fewer reflections.

Yes. Reseating will creat new electrical connections.
