“No matter how corrupt, greedy, and heartless our government, our corporations, our media, and our religious & charitable institutions may become, the music will still be wonderful.”

― kurt vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

Ow… are you writing about politics today? of course… No.
I just want to write about a corrupted file, and I’ve been working on this particular file for about three days. And after three long arduous days, all of sudden, the file is not readable. It became a corrupted file without any warning. It feels… supamega oouuch.. it really hurt.

My bad is that I did not back up the files on the cloud, I saved it locally in my expensive external hard disc, I need to write the “expensive” word because it really was bloody expensive for me. IDR 800.000 for a promise of incredibly spacious storage space; 1 terabyte.

This supamega ouuch experience surely brings the lesson that I need.

  1. More is more. If you had bought something with more money, then you surely feel more hurt if that thing is broken.
  2. Bigger is not equal to better. Bigger storage space, bigger capacity, is not equal with better space, better capacity.
  3. Back up your important file… repeat 1001 times.
