    Oh man, I know how this is. I probably still have floppys of animated gifs lying around somewhere from when I wanted to ‘back up” my old Pentium 3 machine :(
    R.I.P. Mortal Kombat and Chrono Trigger gif files, I have no way to access you now…

    Does this mean you still have “Hudson From Aliens” wav files? And where can we get them?

    It’s weird, but every time I glance away from the first frame, I see the album cover to Pink Floyd’s “A Momentary Lapse of Reason.”

    Duuuuuuude BBS’s!!!

  13. Makinus says:

    Yep, a bunch of wordstar files that i cannot open anymore and… what is that? Grand Prix Circuit? Man, that brings memories….

    I am such a digital hoarder. I think so many are, because HDD’s are so cheap and have so much room now. I have more stuff to watch than I’ll ever have time to. Wife & I love watching Hoarders, she a minor one, but I am a digital hoarder.

  15. Tyralla says:

    I’m a digital hoarder too, saving .wavs, .mov, jpgs. Even my WoW alts’ banks and bags are always full. Erm real life too. /sigh

    *looks at comic*
    *looks in documents folder*
    *hides messages from 1995 mailing lists in the 1998 university coursework folder*
    *sits back in satisfaction*

  20. The last frame has me laughing still—excellent!

    You hit a nerve, and reminded me of an archiving job that’s… going to continue for the rest of my natural life. If only I could find my high quality copy of the original Tripping the Rift.

  21. Zikco says:

    Hmm… reminds me that I have to do some house cleaning on my D: drive, since I’m running out of space, again…

    What some people call hoarding I call inadvertent backups. Just found another copy of my music on some hardrive kicking it in a non working external enclosure

    I really have a problem with generic electronic hoarding. I just know once I toss all of it the apocalypse will come and ill actually need a g 3 with no hard drive

    Hilarious!! In other news…I think I may have a problem. :P
