and have ripped them into .iso files and saved them to
both laptop's hard drives and to a 64 gig Secure Digital
Now, I have all seven seasons on two laptops and SD so
it's unlikely I'll ever lose the use of them.
I don't trust DVDs anymore as I have some older ones
that have degraded around the edges and no longer work.
It seems if they start separating near the center where
I think the file system resides, they no longer work at
all. At any rate, if I want hard copies now I can burn
them to top quality blank DVDs and be back in business.
But, really, the .iso files are superior because they are
quiet - no whir from the DVD drive since they run
strictly off the hard drive which is too quiet to even
Oh, also backed up all seven seasons of GoT .iso files
to my Passport Terabyte portable USB HDD along with
a complete Toshiba laptop HDD backup.
BTW, my erstwhile, off-line touch pad is working again
so my old Toshiba is working like new again. Sometimes
I amaze even my own self with my continued competence
when I'm supposed to be getting old and senile. It just
ain't happening, folks.
Am I bad or what? I can't believe Nads doesn't admire
me. I can understand if she has no interest in my body
since she's a lesbian but how can she not love my mind?
Seriously, when I was in my late 20's a friend of mine
who was going for his doctorate in education wanted to
practice giving me a few standard IQ tests to gain
experience. I believe he was majoring in special education
but I guess those retards also get IQ tested. Anyway,
of the three tests I participated in (some of it was verbal
and some written) I scored 145 on one, 157 on another
and 165 on a third. Of course, I was in my prime then.
Now, about forty five years later, I've undoubtedly lost
a few points but I'm still squarely located in the genius
range. I bet Nads and kensi's IQ tests can't compare.
I recall how amazed my friend was when he tested
my memory recall. What he did was say, "I'm going
to read out loud a series of random numbers. All you
have to do is remember as many as you can in the
correct order and say them back to me." He started
out easy with five numbers and worked his way up to
twenty. At ten, when I repeated them correctly, he
raised his eyebrows, at fifteen correct, he rolled his
eyes, at twenty he almost became apoplectic. When
I repeated all twenty back to him in the correct
order, he was so shocked. He said not one in ten
million people could do that. Try it. See what your
feeble intellects can do with it. I bet seven or eight
at the most. Skeet would be lucky to remember five
correctly with his burned out marijuana brain.
Time to celebrate! Time to pop the cork on another $5
bottle of wine... (or it might be a screw top). Gotta
get those damned Form 1040 Instructions out of my
mind. Assholes don't print them anymore so I had to
download them as a .pdf file on my laptop. I sure
didn't want to waste all that paper and ink printing
the damned thing so I memorized it instead. Now, I
feel like my mind is all cluttered up.
