Media frenzy

Sorry, everybody, not much to report since last time, although I did catch up on my lost sleep from Thursday night. I spent the weekend migrating and verifying data, woo hoo! I set up a new computer with 820 gigabytes of storage space for my several seasons of TV (e.g., every episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, Weeds, Deadwood, Six Feet Under, My Name is Earl and Lost; Season 6, 7 and 8 of Charmed; Seasons 5, 6 and 7 of CSI; Seasons 4 and 5 of CSI: Miami; Season 3 of CSI: NY; Season 3 of Numb3rs; Season 4 of NCIS; plus a handful of one-offs and movies). I found out the hard way that Windows 2000 doesn’t like hard drives larger than 137 GB. I lost a bucketload of files and folders since Windows wouldn’t read all the partitions on all the drives. However, I found out that had I installed Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4 and modified the registry to enable large logical block addressing (LBA) before I started screwing with the drives and partitions, I would have been fine. Damn! So now I’m in the process of downloading all the disappeared files. Thank goodness I didn’t lose my entire collection of all the Astroboy episodes!

Now I need to migrate my music, although there’s only about 20GB (about 4000 tracks). But before I do, I think I’ll try to rename the files properly.
