The house has remained Pothead-free! I thought for sure that he would be there when I came home on Sunday night, but no - the house was dark, and quiet, except for Floyd yowling because I dared to leave him for a couple of days.

Yesterday, when I got home from work, I just sat down and read and enjoyed the silence in the living room. It was bliss. I'm going to do the same thing tonight, after running a few errands. Dare I hope that Pothead won't return until after the weekend?


I don't know why, but last night I decided to investigate how much free space I have on my C drive... and, yeah, not much. The main culprit? 60+ GB of music. Oh, iTunes. Seriously, why has no one developed a smaller music file type, one that will preserve the sound quality but take up less space? Because obviously I have an addiction.

Anyway, I think I need to trim some fat, some of the albums that I haven't liked, never listen to. If I don't know the artist and haven't listened to the album in a year, BOOM, gone. And I'm going to shuffle around some stuff between the C and D drives, to make more music room. I'm going to check out some external stuff, but I am hesitant, because the last time I tried to back up my music on an external drive, my entire iTunes library became corrupted, and I lost everything. Everything. Which was kind of freeing, once I was done being depressed about it. But, really, I'd rather that didn't happen again.

This is the kind of thing that is both exasperating and yet also sort of exciting to me - looking for solutions, seeing what I can swing, what sounds the best. I don't know if I can add any more disk space, and I need to think about what I should compress.

Probably not tonight, though. I need to enjoy the quiet some more!

What ever happened to those HUGE computers? Bet those had lots of space on them. I need one of those.
