Assuming I don't spring for expensive fancy lenses for my eyes, I'm staring down about $12k to spend in the next few months on things like fixing the electrical service and a new bed.

Drobo is working out, but damn does 24TB take forever to transfer. I've got about 3TB done so far. Thought I'd switched to a faster mechanism, but maybe I've parallelized too far and am slowing myself down.

I did the math over dinner: A single 512GB microsd card, the size of my thumbnail, of which I own two or three, could hold more than three hundred fifty five thousand 3.5" floppy disks. I have a bin of them (floppies) downstairs I need to rip and archive. Anybody got a bored teenager they want to torture?
