This is getting ridiculous.

So, I’ve been doing some cleaning, and I’ve consolidated some stuff, and moved some stuff around.

I have a shelf full of “old hard drives”. It now has on it something in excess of four or five terabytes of storage space which I’m not using because I just plain don’t have any immediate use for it. It’s drives that were used for one of the old servers, or a backup disk from a previous laptop that I’m not quite sure I want to wipe out now, or whatever… And it’s a few terabytes of space. And not only am I not currently using it, I don’t have any immediate plans to use it. The biggest impetus to do anything about it all, really, is the realization that it’s getting full and I can’t stash my old drives there anymore until I clear it out or something.

  1. Now you just have to realize that any new machine you buy won’t be able to use any of these disks as it’s bound to have another interface entirely. I just dumped a handful of ATA disks at the recycling station because who needs a 10 Gb ATA disk these days? It’s grim indeed… Took a hammer to them first though, so I got a bit of use out of them. :-)
