One of the nice things about my new computer is that it's hard disk has about ten times as much storage space as my previous computer. I had my doubts that I would ever find a way to use all that storage space, but just as Demand will always rise to exceed Supply, I think I've discovered a way to eat disk space quickly.
Having discovered that one of my Renaissance Dance CDs had gone bad (a spot of oxidation or something in the disk), I decided that I needed to back them up. One dance track can take up several megabytes of storage as an MP3 file. While it doesn't look like much yet, I suspect that MP3 files could quickly become the primary occupiers of my disk space.
