The packrat in me doesn’t allow me to throw anything away.
Well, not exactly. I just wonder if there’s any photographer out there who claims to have his all his data in order.
It’s starting to get a little out-of-control.
My computing excesses aside, I never believed I would generate so much “data” in such a short time.
Of course, the fact that I am teaching compounds my computing needs for space.

Well, I’m finding I have to go into IMDb to scrounge for some obscure heavies. I just blew by all the classic names like “Oddjob,” “Goldfinger,” “Dr.No,” “Blofeld” in such a short time period, that I’m already considering Nick Nack, (Xenia) Onatopp and Mayday.
