well, do it like that... by time you will understand that there are
faster ways to do things... keep yourself busy with simple tools. When
you go shoping you split up your shopings into 10 bags, you bring bag
1 home, then back to the shop etc. etc.? If I have to do 100
operations on a 4GB file, why would I keep myself busy to split it up
into pieces you mention, load each time piece1 realise that it is in
piece 2 etc. etc. You are suggesting me to do so, because you might
have done it like this. You did your job... But this does not mean
that there are better ways to do it... But the same ...
