How much media do you have stored?
    #318663 - 11/19/09 07:15 PM (7 years, 23 days ago)

Over the past year I have made it my goal to try and accumulate a nice library of music, movies, ect.

I bought one of those 500 GB externals and have been steadily filling it up to the point where I might have to get another one the next year or so

40 GB of Music
107 GB of Movies
80 GB of TV (All Southpark Seasons, The Office, and 5 years of Daily Show)
> 1 GB in Pictures

I just got a sad feeling that sooner or later all this access to free media and stuff is going to shut down. I hope I am wrong. But just in case id like to have myself a nice library of stuff for the future

Ideally id like to finish filling up this 500 GB drive then get a 1 TB one.

i've got no idea.  these are rough estimates as the HD's are in the other room atm. 

music - 180 gb or so
movies - 30-40 gb
pictures - 30-40 gbs

my digital drug library is huge too.  It's probably 60-70 GB's of videos, lectures, and word/pdfs.  thats most of it.

I've grown to learn that... I bought it several years ago, $1400 so I went low with things when I first bought it.  Motherboard fried 3 days after warranty expired and the fuckers wouldn't even TALK to me without paying them $40 then refused to send me a new motherboard and insisted that I spend a shit ton to send it to them...

Almost everything in it is replaced by now, but its still kinda out of date, and the one thing I haven't added to or replaced was the HD....  And that will be next....

Jeez that sucks. One of my rich friends spent near to 2000$ on his Alienware, and I could have built a computer with better specs for like 650-750$.

I downloaded and lost more than that in my dialup years. I need another 500GB External now. Two actually. I don't like to go bigger than that and duplicate each in case of failure. I've been slack lately but I usually leave my comp downloading 24/7 except pausing or slowing it when I'm actively using it online. Like now. Have since the early 90's. I used to only have CDs to back up to and I've got stacks of mixed up unlabled ones with who knows what on them. When the apocalypse comes and I'm stuck in a bunker at least I should well entertained. :grin:

That's the whole reason I started my permanent library. I lost all my media several years ago when I had my computer crash

backing up an external is a bit redundant though

Not when everything on the external is the only copy there is. If that external fails a lot of shit is lost. They have gotten cheap enough now to make it worthwhile. I've lost enough in the past to know. Personal pictures are now backed up onto every computer and drive we have after loosing about a years worth once. It would take an EMF bomb to make that one happen again. Even then a lot of them are stored online as well.

Interesting to think about. My first digital camera was $300.00 ~2 megapixels and only held about 24 pictures in memory at the standard setting. My latest one was $100.00 8+ megapixels and holds thousands with the card installed. The thing to be careful about now is to not leave them on the camera without backing it up. I don't. I copy over every session.

I have an external terabyte hd that I picked up for about 100 bucks.  All the storage I'm gonna need for awhile.

300 gb filled so far consisting of almost strictly games and music, movies I dl then burn to dvd and delete.

you know what i did in english class? I came to class stoned out of my mind every day, i chugged vodka in the back of class, i put dead fish in the ceiling tiles. i put a gallon of old milk and orange juice in the file cabinet before winter vacation. i brought snakes in a tied up sweater and let them loose during class. i didnt go to school to learn, i went because i had to. i didnt care, and i didn't fucking listen to that stupid bitch. and i still don't fucking care. i tore the pages out of her books and burned them, and threw away all the books in the class, two books per day.  :twobooks:
