The parent makes a good point. Flash cards are very slow when compared to hard drives. An 80x flash card (the highest I've seen) is only 12 Mbps! To contrast that, Western Digital's Caviar drive lists 602 Mbits/s (Max).

I'd only use one of those cards in special situations. Especially since flash also costs much more per megabyte.

Hackers are just a migratory lifeform with a tropism for computers.
