Frustrating Things( four of those )
It was fun, I'm glad we went, we would never move there.

I've been so proud of my careful backup strategy, alternating complete backups between two 1TB drives, plus selective agglomerating backups to disk images on the drive. But still, my laptop was getting sort of full, and therefore all my programs were operating slowly. (OS X swaps files in and out of memory in big fat chunks, but my hard drive was only offering small skinny chunks as destinations.)
I grabbed a nice free utility called Grand Perspective, which provides an overview of file size and disposition. Clearly my movies were the easiest to address; they were principally fandom downloads. Around 150 vids and then around a dozen less-known not-available-on-DVD gems like Thoughtcrimes and Buried on Sunday. So I carefully moved all those files to one of my big drives.
And ever so inadvertently erased them all in the past week. * sigh *
Should I attempt to snag them again, or could this be the start of letting go of my hoarding nature?
Both of those movies are worth watching, BTW. The first stars Navi Rawat as a visionary telepath (backed up by a goofy Joe Flanigan, which is why I originally downloaded it). The second stars Nova Scotia, plus a young, smooth Paul Gross, as well as the usual postage stamp of Canadian-actor bingo. It's funny and sad at the same time: the fishery collapse was in sight, but not yet a reality.
