Shiny new storage

Just spent the past 6 1/2 hours backing up the files on my PC to an all new WD 3TB External Hard Drive. Whoo-hoo!!!!

Yeah, 3 Terrabytes. The mind boggles.
I still can't quite wrap my brain around how big that really is. I'm used to dealing with Megabytes and Gigabytes.
But I found it on sale at Best Buy last night and I've been eyeing a 1 or 2 TB drive for a while now. Didn't even know they'd gone up to 3TB yet. It's quite simply...massive! I've got storage room now! And then some! Heehee!

I've been worried about my PC's hard drive filling up considering there's only 113GB of free space left. You can imagine how much space 1GB downloads of SPN eppies take up, along with all the original screencaps, plus there's all the photos from my big Canon DSLR, tons of music, etc. It's a huge amount of files (over 200,000 to be exact)....BIG files. Now I'll be able to delete a lot of them off the PC's HD to make room for new ones. ;)

For those keeping track, this is ext. HD number 6...or 9 if you count the 3 portable ext. Hard Drives. *iz geek* :P

We're only 2 weeks away from having our boys back! Yay! :D I miss them. Don't you?
Thursday was a shorter day compared the rest this week and somehow I came home and then vegged out once again. Didn't really do much of anything except relax, watch a little TV, and do fun stuff online. Oh well. I guess I'm allowed a day or two off from the to-do list. Thank you lovetheguys for the virtual gift this morning and corellian_sugar for the hot chocolate packets that arrived a few days ago. Flist, you take such good care of me. *huggles* Have a good Friday everyone & I hope to watch the rerun of "Caged Heat" tonight. :)
