With my 32 gb RAM I could do that, but what a waste. Even on hardware level we don't access the drives one byte at a time. I think that my old Elf was about the last generation of computers that could not afford read or write buffers. Even a buffer of only 512 bytes already reduces the overhead to 1/512 of single byte access,even more if the disc would have to spin once before the next byte can be read.
