Using an SSD should have the same effect on VASSAL as it does on any
other application, viz. that parts of the app which read or write
the disk a lot should execute quicker.

I can't think of any mechanism by which a properly functioning SSD would
be slower for any application, let alone VASSAL in particular.

Is AT&T your ISP, by any chance?

Furthermore, please tell us what your heap settings are if you're having
a heap size error. We can't guess.
