Back Upon Friday, August 3, 2012 at 12:02 AM
I’m always shocked when I discover someone does not back-up their computer files or sync their smart phones on a regular basis. I would literally not be able to sleep at night if all my comic files and every random piece of reference material I scraped up off the internet that day was not properly stored and filed in multiple places.
Earlier this week, my monthly “back up externals” popped up on my task list. I was beginning to think my computer back-up process was becoming an ordeal, but I’m so used to it at this point it’s become second nature. Somehow I manage to back up 3 ftps, my Dropbox and double back up my 1 of my 3 external hard drives without slipping and somehow deleting 1/3 of my shit. I let the Mac time machines do the rest — sometimes ya just gotta let go and let god, y’know?
I realized that I had too many porn downloads, this lead to me moving a large percentage of them to an external so that I could begin going through each one to remove the ones that I no longer find “relevant”. For obvious reasons, I can only “audit” 1 or 2 in one sitting. I think a problem with a lot of my porn is that I always have it in the back of my head that I’m going to use it for reference one day. Like, I guess I’m going to animate a porno and I want to make sure I have sexy moves and funny “OH” faces to caricature.
I think I’d be a good candidate in the all digital version of “Hoarders”.
