This poll is ANONYMOUS to protect the pride of the guilty! ;)

 

You know how it can be, you've been collecting software, PDF's and text files for years along with assorted videos and other stuff. You may also have have a dozen projects "in the works", so you keep dumping stuff on your TI's diskettes, emulated storage device and your PC as well. So this begs the question, are you organized, or are your systems a complete and utter mess?

 

This poll is designed to see if, "you're not alone", or if you are a "minority slob". Please answer truthfully, because no one will know who you are!

as far as my disks and cart images/etc, the stuff means too much to me on a personal basis that it stays more organized than a good number of other things. ;)

 

I'm pretty orderly when it comes to my hobbies I think. now if i could exhibit the same level of care for the space in front of my desktop Windows PC, lol

For the most part I have everything grouped and moderately ordered. Some systems better than others. Each has it's own area. Like any project's real physical work area I have some scrap catch-all directories and work areas that accumulate "stuff".

 

So if I want to play Atari stuff I work in this folder. If I want to play TI stuff I work in that folder.

 

It's an organic organization. Something that grows with time and branches out. Occasionally a branch dies off and gets consolidated into the greater trunk. Or think of it as a mind-map with funky intertwining patterns that only mean something to me.

If I don't stay organized, there is simply too much data to get out of hand. If that were to happen, I'm not sure I'd be able to organize again.

 

It helps having multiple PCs that I re-image or rebuild regularly. So, keeping data separate and organized makes that much easier.

 

On the TI side, now that I pretty much have all the floppies I'm going to have, it's easy to organize once and never have to worry about it again.

I need a larger physical space for my collection to allow me to set things up in a way that allows thorough organization, so it is as organized as it can be right now, but it is nowhere near either of the extremes. . .
