The storage paradox

Filed under: Personal, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , — . @ 12:29 pm

Not long ago, it feels like a week ago, I bought myself a new hard drive. The 80GB one that came with my computer, that at the time I thought would never be filled, was way too small, and I decided to go crazy. I bought a 250GB one. Just to put things in proportion – The entire holy scripture of Christianity – the Old and New testaments, are 4.2 MB in size, in plain text. That means I could store those 2 books 59,524 times on that drive. That is a lot of space!
Or so I thought.
the drive that was never to be filled, no matter how intent I am on backing up the internet, currently has 700 Mb free. Now I need to buy a bigger drive. What to do?

  1. My best suggestion here would be to delete some of those porn movies you have there…

    * throw away movies you don’t intend to see again.
    * stop downloading stuff you don’t intend to use in the next 1-2 years
    * stop collecting stuff

  2. Well, have you been looking at my hard drive? 🙂

    Took your advice. Back at 30GB free. But we both know this is just a temporary solution.
