a micro blog

Not a lot of micro blogging today because I’m not actually going through many files by hand. It’s consolidating folders then cleaning them of duplicates, then arranging them. Haven’t had to make a single judgmental call about keeping something or getting rid of it. Though, again, storage is cheap and I’m just throwing it all somewhere I’ll never have to worry about it or think about it or access it but it’ll be just fine. In case.

I’ve been getting fairly regularly burned for not having backups since 1999. That time it was a Windows computer and defragging the hard drive vanished a bunch of data. Then there was the time I defragged a Mac and it changed the contents of my music files? Awesome stuff. Just awesome. Backups would’ve made all the difference.
