buff.out isn't created, it's called buff-mem.out (or something) and is 
stored in ram,
but if you set your buffers low enough (one packet for example) you 
wouldn't loose
much work (unless we're talking seriously slow cpu).
If you haven't got 24/7 net access, you could set up a personal proxy on a 
that does have disks spinning 24/7 and use that for buffering to relieve 
some work for
the official key-proxies...
