New Gadget


With the new TV, I’ve connected my desktop up so it acts as the monitor. Its rather good fun having a 32” LCD for Photoshop… but it is also ace for watching Films / TV, as mentioned couple days ago I am watching back through every episode of Doctor Who. The only problem is that this is a 200gb file set and with the other stuff I have on my desktop I do not have enough space for this. My 580gb of HD space is no longer enough.

The only option, buy a new hard drive. Storage is just so insanely cheap these days it was a very simple decision. I jumped onto to check out what is available, and decided that an external drive was the best option. My internal drive is a Seagate Barracuda, and it has always been fine so I have stuck with Seagate, and picked up a 1TB external drive for £73.

The other good news, its not being sent by Royal Mail as per the seller’s website, UPS have it in their van right now on it’s way to me, lets hope it comes before I have to leave the office for #oxtuttle.

    200gb – doctor who, 800gb – porn.

    That maybe the case whilst i’m watching Doc Who, then it will be 1tb porn 😉

    If you had used Royal Mail, you could have had this delivered for Xmas! 😀

    Any chance of seeing the new set-up in action?

    Yeah was thinking exactly that whilst I was writing the above, will take some ‘live’ pics later… (after tidying up a shed load)
