Old Files

This is exactly what my computer looks like. I have backups of things that are so old that the software to open them no longer exists. The things I trash turn out to have multiple copies. I don’t know how many half-formed ideas have a document (or two or three) under names that have nothing to do with the content, and somehow my upgraded iPhoto won’t load the past four years of pictures. Oh yeah, it’s all there, somewhere, but finding it turns out to be a nightmare. Unless it’s something I want to hide: in that case, it just pops up when I least expect it. This is the latest musing from Randall Munroe of xkcd.
