Kind of a funny story...

The other day, I was sitting at my computer, and I figured I should check how much memory I had left on my hard drive... So I checked and i had like 800MB left, so then I was all like "Crap!" because I wouldn't have had enough room for the torrents I had going to finish...

So then, I was going through my computer deleting stuff to free up room, but it didn't do anything... Then I remembered that I had forgotten to empty out my recycle bin, so, of course, I did...

It took a couple minutes to empty, then when it finished, I thought "Well, that must have cleared stuff up a bit."... So then when I went to check how much hard drive space I had left, it said I had 15GB...

So, two good things came of this...

First, I've learned my lesson about emptying my recycle bin, and now do so regularly...

Second, I get major bragging rights for being the guy who had a 14.2GB recycle bin.

What the crap.... 15 GB? Just how many files did you have in there? Well, you're darn straight it took a couple minute for it all to delete. I can't say I've ever had mine reach 5 MB. Yeah, that's funny.

I can top that. I had a corporate client once whose computers had slowed down so much they didn't know what was wrong with them. They had recently upgraded OSs, and deleted all of the previous OS components into the recycle bin. Try 50GB of data sitting in their recycle bins. Well, after the deletion of all their data across thirteen computers, I had to reinstall WinXP because they had deleted so much that the whole system became unstable. Idiots. But I got my $20/hour plus fees for the three days that I was there. Much joy I had.

I don't think that I've ever had that much in the recycle bin... of course I didn't look the last time I cleaned up my iTunes library.
