"Procrastination Alert"

I think I done a bad thing. I bought a 500GB portable harddrive for cheap over the web over the weekend, and because I am apparently a lot closer to the website’s warehouse than I thought, it arrived today. I am way way way behind in cleaning up the harddrives on all three of my functional computers, but now I can just dump everything in one place. I am also way way way behind on cleaning my apartment and my clothes and redesigning and optimizing all my working sites and getting a couple of my non-working sites working etcetera etcetera, but that’s all going to wait while I play with my 500 gigabytes, which is half a TERRORbyte, or 418 times as many mispronounced gigawatts Dr. Brown needed in Back to the Future.

The thing is, I tried this once before, a year ago, with a notebook-resembling 100GB drive that I somehow LOST. It just disappeared. I suspect it may have fallen into a wastebasket and I didn’t notice when I took out the trash – at first I worried about somebody else seeing the files I had stored there, but I hadn’t gotten around to transferring my REALLY embarrassing content, and since half the image files were redesigned logos for this site, that would’ve been like putting a big “return to” address on it. Still, if an evil RIAA drone were to trace the origins of EVERY mp3 I have… I’ve said too much.

Anyway, since my personal flaws include a totally unhealthy mix of perfectionism and procrastination, this big empty data box will probably keep me busy for the next 16 months and 2 weeks at least. See you all later!
