All these computer failures. How do you manage it? I've been using the same HDD and win7 installation for like 7 years now.
Win7 isn't even 7 years old yet.
That said, I agree, I've had the same HDD since 2007, I didn't even upgrade to Windows 7 until 2013.

Huh, so it isn't. I guess I waited like a year after I moved to buy this PC. Now a days, everyone acts like HDDs are supposed to explode on the 5 year mark, though.

Nope. These fucks basically had control of my life and took my computer privileges away. They even threatened to publish my internet history to all my friends and teachers.

I'm sorry I let everyone down.
You can divorce your parents when you turn 14, you know.
I used to have fairly frequent hard disk crashes during early 2000s.But it wasn't related to the quality of the disks or their age... even right now I'm running some 10 year old HDDs that have seen shitloads of power cycles. Turned out the damage was caused by vibrations from a table I had at the time.

Haven't had a single desktop PC on table since that. Always on the floor.
They weren't my parents. They were some family friends that basically tricked us into following their every word for an entire year until my mom snapped out of it.

I could write a novel about it but I don't want to.

My mom wasn't stupid. They were just very convincing. They were originally friends with her before I was born and they had just reentered the picture. It started with them doing little things around the house and then it slowly spiraled into a shitstorm. They even made me, the person they were mentally torturing, into believing that they cared about me and were doing things in my best interest.

Enough with this, it isn't my blog.

No, but I devoted YEARS and YEARS of just plain autism straining myself to find the "perfect" file sorting system for my 4chan fuckery. See current setup - /b/ folder on the left, /a/ on the right. (/a/ is my main board; I haven't been an active /b/ user in 5+ years)

I've strained myself needlessly to try and come up with a sensible, objective, intuitive folder scheme that would, most importantly, make image fetching easier for a particular situation. It also served the utility of not having one big /a/ folder with 10,000 images with no organization. For example, someone's asking for sauce in /a/? BAM! Go to /reference folder, which is less than ~ 50 images, and find the screencap of someone using reverse google image search. Shitty rec thread? --> /OP & His Orientation, select any image, and OP learns of his fag status.

A useless endeavour. But having been on 4chan for 9.5 years, I'm no longer ashamed of my hobby or the time I've invested into it.

I see no reason to or what utility anyone would find in it. Plus there are sure to be some personal things sprinkled here and there that I'd rather not see - for example, the folder of my personal uploads/shoops/threads (and my bans), text posts I never submitted, me asking /b/tards for sympathy on my 16th birthday.

You're better off without it.

>pic related, pls no b& /qa/ mods

I already said what I use. Whatever makes the most sense given the board (like a particular board's staples, recurring discussions, its most frequent topics, ie "waifu faggotry" or "TV vs BD comparisons" or "failsubs" on /a/, "muh rig" or "stallman" on /g/), and whatever makes it easier.

I think it's a journey that's worth embarking on by yourself. Perseverance is its own reward.
