When my mind is not so working

I have on the order of 500 bookmarks in firefox. I just spent 30 minutes organizing and re-organizing about one tenth of that. It would take about five hours to organize all of it? That seems about right.

Not going to do it right now. Oy vey!

I have three thousand, six hundred and eighty-five messages in my INBOX. These are things I either intend to respond to, or need to file somewhere.

my record is something on the order of 1.2 megs of bookmarks. Some sorting may be in order...

1.2 ... megs?

Where every bookmark is on the order of 60 bytes?

It got to the point where there was a noticable lag every time I added one :)

okay. so. say. a bookmark is 100 bytes. 1.2 megs is hmm. only 12,000 bookmarks. I was thinking it had to be more, though I don't know why. Silly off-by-one-orderofmagnitude errors.

I was going to do some silly calculation about adding a bookmark once every 30 minutes, but... eh. 6000 hours, an average of 8 hours sleep a night ==375 days.

A lot and not so much all together.

I was using it much like a history!

..And I had a lot more free time back then :)

right. :heh:


Did you keep multiple bookmarks of a site when you went to it recurringly?

/me imagines data mining what a person considered their relevent web history.

sort of.


I've got a cute folder called "reboots" which keeps folders of tabs of things that are my "currently active/using/looking at/remembering" sites--saved every so often when I want to restart firefox or :gasp: my machine as a whole. :)

Big bucket o' state!

Tabbrowser extensions is *supposed* to do that automatically, but I haven't had it crash since I installed it. I think plugins are causing most of my crashes, as I've noticed a pile of java_vm processes on a couple of 'em.

I've reinstalled 4-5 times this week; I feel like a windows user! :D

Memetic overload
Doesn't unplugging the data jack, at least partially, just seem more and more attractive? Or perhaps you need a faster uplink system. :)

I find that if I cut the extraneous crap, I can cut more of what I actually want down. Of course, what's extraneous will differ for all of us.

Re: Memetic overload
what's extraneous does differ.

I _am_ cutting back.

For instance, NFG.

"what's extraneous does differ. I _am_ cutting back. For instance, NFG."

I know. It must be hard -- I remember how excited you were about working for it. But all things change.

End of an era, huh?

Re: Memetic overload
Quite. It's hard not to be excited about it still. It has so much fucking potential! And ... well, there are serious and intentional roadblocks in the way. :whinebitchmoanbitchbitchbitch:

I personally don't see why NFG can't continue on without me--I was just the ghost in the machine; I built something that other people run just fine. But other folks seem to be saying the 'end of an era' thing as well (those exact words), and wondering where it's going to go now.

Dunno. I really don't see how my semicorporeal presence makes a difference one way or the other.


La. :)
