+3 Drive of Holding!

I had no intention of getting one. Hell, I didn’t even know they were out. But there it was, sitting on the shelf, giving me the come hither look. It’s marked down price and ease of installation. A 3TB external drive in sexy wrapping just waiting for me to take it home and have my way with it.

I simply couldn’t resist its charms and snatched it up and indeed had my way with it.

I wasted no time in getting it hooked up and started copying hundreds of gigs over to it. Now I admit, a lot of the stuff I have is complete junk and should be deleted before the year is over, but I have dozens of movies and TV shows all converted to AVI and MP4 so I can watch them on my iPad. I’ve started combining files from multiple drives to merge everything from multiple machines. Seriously, this should be the last drive I buy for a couple of years. I bought a 2TB a few months ago and now with this drive I have more space than I know what to do with. Well, I know exactly what I’m doing with it, storing movies! I suppose I could start replicating Wikileaks or something.

I do seem to be following that philosophy that the more hard drive space you have the more space you use. I plan to get it all into one place and then let loose with the delete key. My first impression is that 500GB is going to end up in the wood chipper. I’ve been watching a lot of movies using Air Video.

But damn, 3TB on the desktop. That used to be a theoretical amount of hard drive space. If nothing else, bloated installs of Windows have given us massive hard drives. I suppose we should be grateful? No wait, DVD ripping software has given us massive hard drives. No wait, the latest PC games made this hard drive space necessary. Or is it all the naughty content from the web?
