||Failing Miserably, If Not Inventively|
Response to: ??
|Your suggestion is idiotic. Collecting is not about amassing files for the sake of amassing files. Collecting is about enjoying what you're collecting. Having more of what I like means less time to enjoy each individual piece. I'm already behind roughly 200 albums, all leeched through dialup (my listened-to collection is available at http://disobey.com/d/lists/albums, where I don't consider an album "listened to" unless it's gone through the player twice, from start to finish, sans interruption). Likewise, only 20% of my mpeg collection has been watched, cataloged, and enjoyed (that 20% is at http://disobey.com/d/lists/video_files). Increasing the amount I download merely decreases the amount I enjoy. The current line of reasoning is that I'm losing "time" because dialup is "slow"; it shows an incredible lack of understanding about what I do with my machine, how I do it, and what type of time I wish I had more of. As predicted, you hold your sides in contempt, yet I merely chuckle at your ignorance.|
