Maybe, but flash filesystems (at least the modern ones) randomize  
write access over the whole memory area.

I'm looking into parts of the DRAM which could be used instead, there  
are other values which live across a reboot / reset. Maybe a  
combination of both storage locations could be used: Daily into  
flash, and every minute into DRAM.
