I blame Matt
... at least, in part.

He reminded me that I had meant to pick up a copy of "Hayseed Dixie", a bluegrass interpretation of AC/DC hits. As I was poking around Amazon.com for that CD, I was reminded that I had also stuck "Moody Bluegrass" in my wish list - seemed like a good CD to get at the same time.

So, these both showed up today, and I proceeded to stick them into the machine over here with the fancy aluminum case and the 64bit processor that get used mostly for iTunes. And as I'm ripping "You Shook Me All Night Long" onto my file server, I get an error box saying that I'm out of space.

Sure enough, some 44.1 GB of music, 16,000+ songs or so, had indeed filled up the drive. Looks like it's about time to invest in a larger drive for that machine. Maybe one of them new-fangled RAID arrays. After Christmas, maybe.

Or if not RAID, perhaps just USB2/FireWire external drives.

I've got a few of those kicking around already, and they're handy for hauling dozens of gigs at a go from place to place. I think that I'd rather fill up the space inside this particular machine - if nothing else, it keeps me from having yet another power cable in that room.

I'll claim responsibility for the Hayseed Dixie, but not for your running out of space :)

I moved some stuff, deleted some stuff - I should be safe for another couple weeks, at least.
