Is it possible to have too many volume changes?

    One of the things that bugs me about my Droid is that the volume rocker is too easily hit, resulting in accidental volume changes to/from silent mode. My solution has been to use Tasker to set the volume as desired every minute.

    Looking back at my days of working with dial-up modems, I remember a guy who set the modem init string to write to memory every time the modem initialized. After about 1000 or so modem initializations, the modem failed to retain the written information because the flash memory used in the modem was only good for a limited number of writes.

    Am I in danger of running into a similar problem on my Droid, where it no longer retains the settings because I've written them too many times?

    technology has advanced quite a bit since then. i dont think you should have too much of a problem. though i would be worried about say using 1mb of ram and then only 98% of the ram used coming back. which results in 2% of that 1mb not becoming free, resulting in over time, a ram shortage.
