Hell, I used to do that with Infocom games back in the DOS days, because every command would hit the floppy to return the appropriate response.

Solution: RAM disk the same size as the floppy (320K), copy the whole disk to RAM to play, save games to the B: floppy. Game actions were stupidly fast for the most part.

When I grew up in Western Canada, we had like an hour to eat lunch at school. So we took our time and then ran around outside for 20-30 minutes.

A year I moved to the Eastern US and we had 20 minutes to eat lunch, and then we had to go immediately back to class, with no chance of leaving the school.

Either way I had a packed lunch from home, but I hated having to wolf it all down with no time to relax.
