For 26 song, and a few thoughts.


Skimming over the last 36 years of my life.

Backup plan

So, I found some old thumb drives last month. I'm now going over tons of old pictures, archives, and documents, trying to remove duplicates, and maybe those files I'll never ever need (like anything related to the politics of the city I left 2 ½ years ago)

A) I start by sorting into images, music, videos, and everything else.
B) I have everything else sorted by year, although a big gap between 07 and 09. Guess that computer didn't get backed up.
C) With all the phone backup and thumb drive backup, I had numerous copies of some pictures, videos, and music. So images are sorted by year (again, very few between 2002 and 2009 ugg), and try to cull duplicates.
D) I still have the Xanga archives
E) I can back up random and images in under 2GB. Music and video will take much more room.
F) A few disks I used to have but either got scratched or lost in move and didn't make the chain of mp3 backups. Sigh. Especially Brad Paisley's first album.
G) A very large folder for all of Ivy's stuff from college and her phones. No touchie.
H) Our friend sent my wife the links to the renewal pictures. Trying to get a chance to download all 235? of them, let Ivy go print them out, etc.
I) However, the computer may be leaving the attic. It's too hot in the attic when it's hot outside.
