It's time-consuming to go back through all my files and throw things away that I don't need. I like to keep un-flat versions of Combat Cards in case of something-or-other, but I also wind up holding unused and huge backgrounds of places that might well be gone and alternate avatar pictures* that are just kind of nice. It's easier, although time-consuming, to chuck out early versions of cards that I save whilst working in case the change I make goes awry.
I'm guilty of using my old computer as a kind of jumbo storage device, and I also archive on DVD just because sometimes it saves me incredible amounts of time when someone rings me up and says, "Remember that (graphic thing) you made for me last year? I need the phone number changed."
I haven't had a printer since I stopped being interested in buying more ink for it when I had TONS of black ink, wanted to print black, and it wouldn't do it as one of the color cartridges was out. I decided I just barely need a b/w printer maybe five times a year, so yesterday I bought a b/w laser printer fer cheap. Nothing to dry up, and by the time the toner is out I'm sure there will no longer be an issue. I was prompted by having to ask Tiff to print a form for me, which she did with her email address and so forth on the pages.
