Save My Soul.

I'm in the market for an External Hard Drive.

Come payday, I'm probably getting this.

Yeah, that's one Terabyte of storage. I need it for all the porn.

The Sidekick even went as far as to accuse me of getting ready to download HD Movies - it hadn't even occurred to me to used the space for that.

Really, though, I'm just doing it so that I can wipe my main system when ever I want to, without all the hassle of juggling 17 DVD's worth of backups. It's really something I should have done a long time ago - I've just been putting it off for a while.

I think while I'm at it, I'll throw in some more memory as well - give the 'ol girl a treat. (More memory is like Botox for computers, right?)

We'll see how it goes - but having almost 15 times the amount of storage I currently have at my disposal will be tempting. I may never delete anything ever again.

  1. I don't get the part about 15 [DVDs], unless you're wanting to use the drive as a daily backup of your user account. That'll work, I guess.

    Can't find a better price on mail order, which is just plain bizarre.

    Rumour has it the backup software is sucky, so expect to be underwhelmed. Truly, backups should be kept offsite. I say this as someone whose house did catch fire. ;-)
