Solved - how to stop killing MicroSD cards in Rasoberry Pi

I have multiple iRidium Server projects, with some quering devices through JavaScript every 200ms. These are all being written to variables which after 7 - 10 days, kills the MicroSD card in a Raspberry Pi. Since switching to SSD (using MicroSD as a bootloader and SSD to run OS/iRIdium) I have had stabilty for over 2 months now. In addition, the responses to these variables is much faster and more reliable too. So, if you are having poor performance with triggers or dying Pi's, try running from a USB3 SSD instead.
