Moving Data

I spent most of the day moving data on my hard drive.  For most people this might be a simple task, but when you have several terabytes of data, it takes a long time.  (A terabyte is 1024 gigabytes.)

While waiting for some files to copy, I did the grocery shopping at WalMart.  You know, if there were any truth in advertising, they wouldn’t (1) brag about the quality of their meat and produce, and (2) they wouldn’t claim to have such low prices.  I just went there out of convenience.

I looked at what routers they carried, and a worker came up and asked if he could answer any questions about routers.  I almost said, “No, but can I answer any of your questions?”  (but that would have been a little pretentious.)  And, speaking of prices, they were on the average about 10% higher in prices than BestBuy, which is about 10% higher in prices than many of the on-line stores like Newegg.com.  Needless to say, I did not purchase a new router at WalMart.

I returned home to find the files were still copying.  It’s going to be a long day.

The bishop and his wife came over as our home and visiting teachers.  We had a nice chat and then Elizabethe showed them how she organized her canning.  I think they were pretty surprised at some of the items we have canned.

Going back out to my office, I found the files were still copying.  It looks like I’ll just have to leave this to complete over night.
