What if I am an electronic hoarder? #WeAreTheProblems
I overthink everything to make the world a happier place
What if I am an electronic hoarder?
I have 183GB of stuff on my computer.
And I only need about none of it.
Emails, photos, files, I’m like that documentary man living in his own filth - crawling between piles of stuff that he can’t let go.
I am an electronic hoarder.
But I’m worse than a hoarder because I backup my backups.
So I’m doubling the stuff I’m holding onto.
Onto actual hard drives.
And now it’s actual hoarding, finding actual places to hide them.
It isn’t easy.
That’s why they’re called hard drives.
Because it'd be a calamity if my out of focus people pictures of people I live with fall into the hands of people I don’t live with.
I've got to hide them from burglars who specialise in out-of-date photography.
I am terrified of deleting anything.
But I love it because it’s the one time my PC is even less decisive than me.
“Are you sure you want to delete this?”
The only answer they give you is “Yes” or “No”
That’s because a computer programmer who get a machine into my house is a really successful person.
Bill Gates and Steve Jobs didn’t make ker-jillions from knowing words like “Maybe?” or “Can we do it after Ice Road Truckers”
I should only get my gadgets from mediocre ditherers.
That forget my stuff now and again.
I need my files on a box built by a chump.
What if I just don't believe in school? #WeAreTheProblem #SATs
All about me, and getting these by email.
