so i’m finally getting around to cleaning up some old files that have been accumulating — just wondering what the hell to do with it all. for example, my eudora folder from 1997 – 2004 (roughly my Reactivity time) is 577 MB (with no attachments). sort of ridiculous. should i keep it around? delete it? i don’t know. it’s not like books & letters — doesn’t take all that much space & isn’t that heavy to carry around — but it’s not useful, for sure.
although, looking through the oldest file i could find in that bunch cracked me up — my brother’s resume from when he was in college and included: "Summer 1994 FRANK AND HENRY’S FAJITA HUT Rockwall, TX". too funny. reminds me of so many ridiculous jobs i’ve had. fastfood cook at Quick Wok; ride operator at Jungle Jim’s Jamboree.
i guess the occassional humor value is maybe worth toting around gigabytes worth of stuff. (question to ponder: would i rather have all this stuff just archived at google forever & ever? quick response: ick. no. 2nd response: maybe. 3rd response: i’m not sure i care.)
