My Storage Space

When I got my first computer back in December of 1996, I had a 640 MB hard disk. Yes that’s 640 MB and not GB!

How pre-historic – that’s how much free space I now have in my current PC’s C drive! Well 662 MB actually. I have an 80 GB internal hard disk and I have 28 GB free space of that. Now 80 GB may be laughable for a lot of you in West but it’s an ok deal for me.

The major space takers are about 14 GB worth of movies & clips and about 5 GB of music videos & live performances videos of my favourite rock bands & solo artists.

I also have a 120 GB external hard drive on which I have my MP3s – currently 24.3 download kelly s heroes movie but I will be adding another 4.22 GB more over the weekend which will make it 28.25 GB!

I also have 26.6 GB worth of videos (21 Star Trek Voyager episodes, 13 Farscape episodes, 5 Star Trek DS9 and a couple of movies, all downloaded from the net) in the external.  Which means that I have about half of that remaining free.

In a couple of months or so I will be looking to upgrade and get a new & bigger (looking for 250 GB & above) external hard drive. The 500 GB mega muthafucker is the dream! Got any suggestions?

Dinner & American Idol 8

I left the office at around 7:30 pm and as I got out of the bus at my stop, I remember that since there was nothing at home to eat, I needed to buy something for my dinner. Being alone was fine; it mean a quite dinner in front of the tv and perhaps a movie or two.

So I bought some chicken 65 and some fried rice and walked back home. Hindsight being 20/20, I should have bought something cold to drink, it still being hot and humid. Right now, all I have to drink is room temprature water, so I’ve just put a bottle in the freezer.

So I switched on the tv and watched American Idol while I ate. I haven’t been following the show in recent years and I guess I was never a big fan of it. But since I love music, I tried to see how good the participants were this year and who was the best.

I gotta say that I really like Danny Gokey – I thought he was down to earth and he has a good set of pipes. He really soared at the end. Sad to hear about the tragic death of his wife. And ofcourse I gotta give my support to the Indian boy – 22 year old Indo-American Anoop Desai! I heard that he had some tough love given to him earlier, especially by Simon Cowell but tonight he was on and everyone thought he did great. Nice set of vocals on him as well.
