Seems my work IP address has permanently banned from Ars Technica comments system for spam.
I’ve been clearing out my TV folder on the server. It went from 1.4 TB down to 769 GB. There’s probably more I can do but need to check no-one was in the middle of watching it, or saving it to watch. There was stuff on there that I’ve had for years, and no-one has watched it. I kept it for myself to watch but never have, and at this point I don’t think I ever will. So it’s gone. There are a few shows we’ll keep as we, mostly my wife, likes to rewatch them. I’ve yet to start on movies.
Doing this has made me reconsider physical media. I moved all our DVDs onto the server 10+ years ago and I don’t think anyone has bought a DVD/bluray in ages. My wife asked for a bluray player last year, so we got one. She still has lots of them, but I got rid of all mine once on the computer. I’m in two minds about it, I’m thinking I’d rather have the physical media as it costs nothing to keep, and generally it’s cheap to find used or in sales. However, it is nice to be able to watch things on any device and not just the main TV.
Giving a presentation tomorrow at a conference. I was meant to be figuring out what I’m saying tonight but instead messed about on the computer 🤭. I’m sure they’ll be time in the morning…
