Archiving is Boring
True, it is - however when a file is needed and I don't have it I'm very unhappy. There's no way to recreate something I've done as the things are all too complex and even I don't known what I've done. So I've been sitting here burning DVDs for Combat Cards, SL screenshots, clothing, misc. design projects, the Photo Studio. I threw away a lot of video footage earlier and I want to archive finished movie-lets. I must say I regret (a bit) having chucked my old video taken in SL in 2004, as there was some of Nova Albion that was interesting. Anyway, for people who say, "What - you think everything you do needs to be saved?" No, but I generate a lot of files that are also usually very large. I often need to go back and change a minor thing on something (say, a dress is wanted in a different color) and my alternative to archiving is to do the thing over from scratch. DVDs are cheap and I am glad to have the capability. Boring, though.
Well posting that used up the burn time for one - yay!
