Spring erm... Summer Cleaning

I don't think anyone can emphasis enough how important it is to keep your set up clean and tidy. So, I've been having a bit of a clean up on the old computer system. I went for a full on format and reinstallated the operating system. I then put my full sound library back and a few old projects on the new formatted hard drives.

The purpose? Well, to get my system running abit faster and smoother is the obvious answer. The fact that I hadnt done a full format in about a year was another reason. But, is also a opportunity to backup my work. Don't get me wrong, I back up everything I do religiously as and when I do it. But I, like many others, have been in the situation where our back ups hard drives/dvds/whatever have decided to break or stop working... at the wrong time. So as a general rule, I like to try and keep everything backed up twice now. Although the first back up is the priority, I like to make sure I have 2 working copies of my work whenever I update or reinstall my system.

Though, I guess you all know this already. So I'll leave you for now with a little sound I discovered whilst going through these backups... one that I had left uncatalogued *gasp*.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Sellotape.
