Back to Basics

Today, by mistake, I deleted 800 e-mails I was saving. Some were eFaxes, some were from friends, some were business related and so on. This is mail accumulated over the course of year or so. Anyway - all of them are gone.

In the past I would have absolutely freaked out at losing that many e-mails, and would probably be under the desk right now sucking my thumb in fetal position over losing that much stuff. That's not the case obviously. Instead I just shrugged my shoulders and said "Oh, well." As a matter of fact, I'm pleased that it's gone. Now I don't have to keep track of that crap.

This clean-up process, whether intentional or not, has been on ongoing process for me. I remember what my computer used to be like. It had fancy wallpaper, all custom icons, RAM-enhancing utilities, lotsa games, the latest and greatest web browsers and all sorts of other useless garbage. These days I run computers mostly "stock". I load 'em up, patch 'em up (no matter what operating system,) and run 'em. The hard drives are kept clean and I only install a few apps that I have saved to CD.

Sometimes it's just good to start back at zero, otherwise you get too wrapped up in minutia that doesn't matter at all.
