Is this sexy or what?

If I was asked to imagine a perfect deity, I would never invent one that suffers from a multiple personality disorder. Christians get points for originality there.

Why do we fall back to earth? Because our weight pushes us down, no laws, no gravity pulling us. It is the law of intelligence.

I liked the old DOS defrag myself.
I am a terrible person and I am a typical Blowhard Liberal for being wrong about Bom.

Try Defraggler, or virtually any other disk defrag utility. They're much faster. Why waste time when you can... well, not waste time?

The reason I thought it was sexy is because I've never defragged that harddrive. I've been moving stuff there under strict organization for a long time. It would seem that my lack of editing with non-changing and non-moving files resulted in a contiguous data structure.

If you never move, delete, or edit files then it's not surprising.

??? I don't think you know how a hard drive works. Hard drives will always try to put the data on the edge of the disc first. This is the mathematics of a circle. You can read/write faster to the edge because the edge spins faster than the centre so the little reader can cover more distance (data) of the magnetic disc for a set rpm. This is primarily what defragging is for. It sends the most used and important files to the edge for better performance as well as making files contiguous. This is one of the reasons you don't defrag an ssd. There is no edge, you don't get better performance. Your computer is smart. It knows to put the files at the edge of a disc and so it lays them there first. Its only when you start deleting and moving files that holes and gaps appear and the performance is not optimum. Its also why a clean install of an operating system makes a faster computer. The operating system takes the prime real estate, right on the edge. All of your files are of similar importance as they are cinema files. There is no operating system or anti-virus or anything else that might be deemed more important and moved.

Next week I will be describing how the printing press works. Until then, I shall go back to my solid state drive equipped computer. :p

It was only surprising because I wasn't keeping track of all the perfect variables. It made complete sense as soon as I thought about it, but the point was that I hadn't thought about it up until then. It was a pleasant surprise, not a mysterious one.

Also, 3 of my 8 external drives are solid state.
