Ya. I was just trying to show what it would be like to try to access a large amount of flash memory in a 'raw mode'.
People are kinda confused, I think, about the whole block vs flash thing.
The way I see it Flash memory, in a lot of ways, is much more like memory then block devices. Instead of thinking it as block devices with no seek time... think of it more like memory with pecular requirements that makes writes very expensive.
