Don’t read this, kohai, it’s about porn. (No graphic images, though.)

I have a large porn collection. Most of which I haven’t watched but downloaded anyway because the description on Empornium sounded interesting. (That’s a private porn tracker that I got into during MRMCD 2013. [Because of this habit my upload/download ratio on Empornium is the best of any private tracker that I’m on.])

And so I have, or rather had, more than 2 TB of porn saved on my disks at home as well as a dedicated seedbox and the server on which this blog is hosted. (It’s a very naughty server, it is.)

[insert cute cartoon image of a dedicated server being lewd and aroused]

But three weeks ago I changed my strategy. I got a new storage server (10 TB, weeeeeeee~) and started uploading my collection to it. (My porn collection and all the other stuff I have downloaded, [Mostly anime and anime concerts.]) I did this in three steps:

1. Transfer everything I have on this server (with the exception of websites hosted here) to the new storage server. (I left my dedicated seedbox alone since there’s no point really in having stuff on two systems, in this scenario.)

2. Upload almost everything from my local disks (zero raid and redundancy) to the storage server. (raid 10 and so at least some redundancy).

3. Go through everything that’s left, in particular the porn, and delete whatever I don’t find interesting or titillating, and then upload the rest.

Step 2 took three weeks. My upload is shit. My internet is 400/20 Mbit/s, and oh, what I wouldn’t get for a 200/200 Mbit/s even split. Or maybe even a 100/300 Mbit/s.

My point is, I need upload more than I need download. (This would also mean that I can seed more from home.)

Step 1 was done in two or three days, I don’t exactly remember. All my servers are in the same datacentre (British English spelling, ‘cauee why not) and have 1 Gbit/s upload so that was good.

So now I’m on step 3. I started with 1.1 TB of porn, and immediately took it down to 800 GB by deleting hugestaponlesbians.com. I’m not really interested in that. I have some lesbian porn that I like because it’s classy, but this wasn’t. It had to go. Next I deleted a bunch of Japanese porn that I can’t understand anyway and that is way too long to keep me up the entire time without understanding what they’re talking about. I wish there were subtitles for JAV. (Maybe that could be a fansub group.) After that I started reorganizing the porn, renaming directories to be more specific, grouping stuff together to have a better idea how many different types of media (comic, audio, video, 3D animation, etc.) I have saved. This could take longer than step 2 since I’m constantly taking a break from it because I probably have ADHD and I can’t focus on anything for longer than 10 minutes. (This is why working in support is good by the way, because taking a call from a customer or verifying a new order or working on a ticket rarely takes longer than 10 to 15 minutes, so I’m actually very productive at work. (I often get told I make my colleagues look bad in comparison, and that I should slow down, but if I’m not constantly working on a new ticket or order or call I start to drift off into the internet where I shouldn’t be at work and that’s not a good idea.) [My YouTube recommendations at work already closely resemble those at home, and I’m not logged in so all it has is my ip address and browser footprint.]

I also took the time to write this post instead of organizing porn, which emphasizes what I meant in the above paragraph I think. I’m not sure anymore. I’m listening to Mark Knopfler which is beautful and distracting.

I’m gonna go back to my SpaceFM workspace to try and get more organizing done.

I’m sorry.
