I only keep series I like, but it's been piling up... Have maybe 10-20 TB archived.
2003-2004 I archived on CDs, most actually don't work anymore, which sucks...
2005-2009 I archived on DVDs, most still work, but some are already down for the count.
2010-current day, I use external Hard Drives, actually already have a 1 TB HD that went down, so I will probably need a better method.

I also like purchasing DVDs and Blu-Rays (though I have to import from the states since prices in Japan are ridiculous), so I have quite a large collection of those.

1 TB laptop, I keep most of what I download, rarely ever deleting.

I've streamed more shows in bed with my galaxy s2 than I have downloaded on my laptop

I don't see any counter arguments to the claim that you don't have enough spare downloads limit to download everything you want. If I'm desperate I can stream over uni internet, but torrents are blocked and I really don't want to risk downloading copyright stuff through university.

Plenty of other ways to download. Not to mention, you will NEVER be flagged for downloading anime. No Jap is going to put the effort in legal costs to attack a consumer outside of Japan, and cant even do anything if they wanted to spend the money if the consumer didn't use torrents.

VDPAU + mpv > mpc-hc + madVR

MPC-HC and the third-party plugins are horribly designed.

>>101673428
One of the dumber stigmas Linux gets. Windows is incredibly crusty and ancient internally, and Linux has advanced to quite a farther extent, the development for core parts goes so much faster.

Boot up a fedora livecd with the default Gnome3 environment, regardless of whether or not you like gnome3, go ahead and tell me that makes you think you're "in the 90s".

>>101677374
Sorry. Typically when people refer to their bandwidth they do it in Mb, not MB, so I just assumed.

Stuff like wget and torrent clients often use MB because it's easier to understand in terms of disk-space.

That's great that you all have 15MB internet and 20TB of storage, but do you actually use any of it for sharing?

There is no difference between have 100kbps internet at 1gbps if you only ever use 100kbps. You should be uploading massively to make the most of your internet, same with heaps of seeding to make your storage worthwhile (cause honestly, you aren't going to rewatch 'shit show #45'

It's a fair sacrifice, because after this I'll probably have a stable income and will be able to live by myself without having my parents telling me what to do.

Harddrives, what else?

I've deleted a lot of what I've seen. I'd estimate I have about 1.5 TB worth of anime saved, 500 GB of that being backlog. Over the next few months I should be able to build a decent collection now that I have an extra 3TB drive. I generally download 1 series a day.

I keep all my chinese cartoons on a 2TB drive now, it's basically all I use it for.

I keep games and system files on a 240GB SSD, finally built a raging orgasm of a dream machine for ~1.4k USD off newegg about a month ago because my old shitbox would overheat and crash unless I left a fan blowing straight into the open tower. I gave up when it started giving blue screens in safe mode, but at least I salvaged my data before my old 700GB drive gave.

I didn't have the space to spare before, the joy of being able to prepare a collection is a wonderful thing.
