I remember reading in Puppy's Barry blog when he was building out his Pi 
systems that he used 5-way expansion to his various RAM cards and 
devices...that should help?
I have a netbook, laptop and xeon server that cannot use standard hard drives 
for various reasons, so I use a read-only boot device and save out to another.

Running the Pi from a read-only filesystem would prevent shutdown problems.

True, but then you can't use it for storage, right?

If you're just using it as a display and a bridge to cloud storage that would 
be sufficient.

I guess root filesystem were r/o, set noatime, and all logs went to ramdisk 
with strict growth /cleanup limits, but store all modifiable files to a 
separate partition or usb key.

Then you can store files, but at least you stay bootable in the face of any
