After all these years, I’m still naming all my hard drives after cheeses. Ran out of space on the 80GB MP3 storage drive (Asiago) and went to see what the biggest ones on the market today are – didn’t end up going that high – got a Maxtor 120GB, named it Manchego (Amy comes up with the best cheese names), copied the collection over. Swapping out drives in OS X is as easy as it was in BeOS – plug in, initialize, use – no formatting. Remembering it wasn’t that long ago when it seemed remarkable that storage was approaching $1/MB. Now we’re nearly at $1/GB.
Bummed to find that iTunes doesn’t store those ratings in ID3v2 tags, as I thought it did – those were in the library file. So lost many moons of track ratings. Sent Apple some rasty feedback on that one.
