Hey all....

So...beginning today with a little rant...I went and got a 750 GB external hard drive...I got the external cuz it was like $80 cheaper than the internal...plus...I went to Best Buy...got the ad...and went to Circuit City...where it was price matched and given another 10% discount =)

Anyway, what pisses me off is...Windows XP introduced a new file system called NTFS...It was "great" because it was more efficient for the sizes of hard drives that would soon come. It also took up less of the hard drive space to establish folder hierarchy. Lastly, it enabled a user to create a file larger than 4.3 GB.

So why the hell...would Western Digital...create a 750 GB hard drive...in 2006...5 years after XP came out with NTFS....and have it formatted in fucking FAT32?!?!?!?

I was trying to move a 7.5 GB video (Top Gear Polar Special) onto the drive...and lo and behold "Not enough disk space" error....with 650 GB free (after conversion, 750 goes to 698)...and since I've moved so much stuff onto the disk already from my other disks...I can't go reformat...

Otherwise...life isn't so bad...I can start taking pictures again since I have like..DOUBLED my hard drive space...

I might go to some natural parks around here or something...if I wasn't so addicted to WoW.

Work...is kinda really tough...like...not anywhere near as hard as school...but definitely not as easy as I thought it would be. It's a very different kind of difficulty...and also...it sorta stops once I walk out of the office and go home...but I probably shouldn't complain...everyday is interesting so far.

I feel bad for the kids who are studying...now that I'm like...outside the bubble and looking in...academia...is way harder than industry. Stress and pressure never ever stopped at school and there was always something added onto your plate. Here...it...seems much more mellow...even at the plant...which is supposed to be one of the most stressful and hectic work environments in the industry (other companies have commented on how good P&G people are, it's not just me being gloaty).

So...comment if ya got anything...otherwise...

Stay Tuned.

actually, I kinda miss school. i don't know why, but the routine work stuff isn't really appealing to me right now.
