(unlikely dreams)

donderdag 15 september 2005

Okay, well, yesterday's post inspired me to get off my lazy bum (or, rather, remain on it) and clean up my computer, so that's what I've been doing for the past 12 hours or so (with the exception of breakfast and 4 hours of sleep). First I went through and deleted all the programs I wasn't using, then ran Ad-Aware, Spybot, PCPitStop, Disk Cleanup, Disk Defragmenter... all those toys. Yet the system's still not running any faster, at least not that I can tell, so I've decided I have to bite the bullet and clean off the C drive. I didn't even have the required 15% of space to run the defragmenter properly last night, and PCPitStop has been giving me a red flag on that drive for ages. So. It's time. I have 15 gigs of music - those aren't going anywhere - and 17 gigs of movies, a couple of which may have to sacrifice themselves. But there really are things I don't need, if I look hard enough... the file of Shania and Shakira music videos, for example, or the chat conversations from high school. So as soon as I get back from class at 11:00, the real work begins. :)
