Optimized Disk I/O Performance

It is well known that Disk I/O is potentially blocking and becomes extremely crucial when it comes to the point of saving dozens of user settings during the page load operation. In order to reduce the interaction with the disk during each save operation (file mode) and as an optimization attempt to reduce the Disk I/O cycles, this script uses a concept of Lazy Saving which Queues all the write operations till the point where there are no more write operations and finally flushes them from Memory to Disk in one shot thus speeding up the entire process.
