Think you have a lot of blank media?

Postby Ian on Mon Dec 13, 2004 7:59 pm

I'm currently in the process of moving all the junk from one of the upstairs bedrooms down to my "toy room" and office. One of the steps in this process was to attempt to clean up my office. I picked up an organizer for my media and picked up all the discs that were piled all over the placed. I didn't realize I had this much.

Image

With the exception of the lower right, those are all blank. The three on the right are a mix of CD-R, CD-RW and DVD+RW/-RW. The rest are all +R or -R. Sadly, I still have another file cabinet worth of discs to go through.

Just wait til you see my shelf of drives...

Man, you guys are asking for it when I get home. I don't know that your high speed connections will be able to DL this much data.

Well, I spent all of last night going to storage to get all the media after clearing out a room to store it in. Unfortunately there wasn't enough space in that one room and I assume you wanted to see it all in one place. I'm going to get a dolly and move it outside so I can get it all in one picture. I may have time to do this today, but it might have to wait until the weekend.

Wow. How small/large was the cleared space then?

They were stacked and it was a decent room size! Ian, this is just the blank media. The 80s pop culture storage (or as you call it, "Heaven") is still locked up.

Those are my "classic" drives and ones I use for write quality testing.

Just a random pile of drives. I really need to finish cleaning out my office. :P

You should see the bookshelf next to it. One shelf is full of books and the one below it full of comics. Both are bending just as bad as that.
