>Over 85TB of anime, doujins, and manga erased from my hard drive by accident
I-i don't know what to do anymore /a/. Hold me
Erase yourself as well.
get it back from the recycle bin noob.....
I didn't know that much existed, even with CoalGirls.
Quit fucking lying you sack of shit
If you didn't format everything or threw it away, there's a good chance of recovering it.
Also, if you're one of the faggots that download anime in multiple qualities just for the sake of it I hope it will never be recovered.
what in the fuck
That's a fucking big hard drive.
You could at least pick a size that's relatively believable.
I refuse to believe you had over 85TB of fucking anime and had NO backups. There is NO excuse. If you have that much data and you have no backups you are asking for it.
Your average Coalguys follower, everyone.
If you don't save anything new, you can probably recover it.
You probably didn't even watch/read 95% of that shit anyways and you know it.
Damn OP that's like three or four coalgrills torrents.
This comment made me laugh
Re-download it? I almost don't see a point to keeping it on HD's when it is so readily available on the net nowadays.
>heavily implying that there's a hard drive that big
Go back to streaming anime on your console, fag
>8500 Gigs of anime
Do you have no taste and just download everything ever without debating if you'd like said series or do you just download really really shitty huge as fuck encodes?
Are they even around anymore?
I stopped hoarding anime (and other media) when I realized I almost never re-watch anything ever.
They are dying.
>Cardcaptor Sakura 1080p Blu-ray 143.4 GB
Fucking hell, coalguys
don't start that shit
I could actually fill this up with the amount of anime I've watched. I need to get a big hard drive soon, everything just sits in piles of DVDs, blank DVDs and VHS tapes
Only things I rewatch are things that benefit a rewatch cuz 2deep, or are my all time favorite.

He never say what the external was of.
It's an external server.
no anon, thats 8.5 TB he said 85, as in 85000 gigs
Hey anon, wanna watch Kara no kyoukai?
My bad i forgot to add a zero
>backing up on an SSD
I'm a newfag, and I don't know what order is best to watch the melancholy of haruhi in?
It's actually 1023.97.
Because no one needs that much space. My company (2000 people, and all we fucking do is create data) has a shared drive that is 80 TB, and we're probably 5-6 years from filling it.

>85 fucking TB
Next you're gonna tell me that you're upgrading to a petabyte, eh?
honestly, what do "normal" people need with more space?
They fill it with documents and pictures, maybe a few short video clips at most. Only people like us who download shows/movies, not necessarily anime, will ever need that much, businesses notwithstanding
You sure it's not a bunch of smaller drives made to look like one big drive?
True. But how many people are going to be downloading 4k files soon? It's pretty much impossible in Murrica. Koreans will have to lead the way.
petabyte hd's already exist you dumb fuck
Is a coalgirl the same as a miner?
There's no market push to make the new technologies affordable, though.
people with graphic design / video editing / digital rendering jobs need a fuck ton of space to save projects on
>your avatar its so large as the 5 movie of kara no kioukai LOLLLLLL
It almost certainly is. My point was more how long it's going to take us to fill it.
No, it's actually 1000. One tebibyte is 1024 gibibytes.
not a yottabyte
Jesus have mercy on your stupid soul for erasing all that shit.

Why buy one 500GB SSD when you can buy two 3TB SATA (one for backup) for the same price?

I used to do that until I ran out of space and realized it was stupid. I just save my favorite shows for rewatching certain scenes, but delete shit shows or shows I'll never watch again
How many terabytes of storage do you think google is using?
I use the SOS Brigade logo as the icon for my anime folder.
Do people somehow not know that raws exist..? Where do you think these groups get their source material to provide you with the standard butchered, bitrate starved, overfiltered re-encode?
But He's DAIZ! The destroyer of 8bit, the curse of old hardware and the prophet of Godecs.
Why download anime when you can stream and not waste space? Honest question
I download episodes that are 500mb and they're high quality
I don't get why go higher, can one even see the difference?
I think it was a joke that snowballed out of control.
Damn. That notation is weird. The more you know I guess.
monthly internet traffic is about 30 exabytes, and one exabyte is a million terabytes
>erased by accident
yeah definitely no problem there
Help me /a/ 100 yottabyte of anime was deleted off my hard drive what do i do
Quality, and archiving. Streams require bandwidth and might not exist forever.
If you're enjoying an experience, and the show is actually worth watching (ie you're not watching anime for the sake of watching anime and drowning out the voids of life), why would you not want that experience to draw from a higher quality "substrate"?
You still download the data to your internet cache streaming. You simply don't have to manually delete afterward. Why would you settle for lower video quality?
Just download it again.
It would only take about 5 months where I live.
So I can rewatch scenes of a certain anime whenever I want, so I can listen to OPs again easily, so I can watch if I don't have internet, quality, because streaming is shit, because it's easier than streaming, and because it doesn't waste space.
>SSD for storage
PCs won't have evolved as we know today without the endless pushing of the gaming community for more graphic processing power, cpu speed and memory.
Daiz is to fansubbing what the gaming community is to PC.
Internet is 4.76837158 exabytes?
>Why download anime when you can stream and not waste space?
Why would I want to stream in shitty 240p quality with ads all over the page and the player buffering like crazy?
I have a pretty fast PC and I have to wait like 10 minutes for an episode to fully load on these streaming sites. Downloading is easier.
>Facebook’s largest cluster—or collection of data-center computers—can handle more than 100 petabytes of information. One petabyte is the equivalent of about 250 billion pages of text. Facebook has a homegrown system called Hive that it uses to collect and keep track of all its data. Every 30 minutes, the Hive system combs through 105 terabytes of data. More than 500 terabytes are sucked into the database each day.
>implying SSDs are volatile
but why would anyone 9999gb per episode?
I'm glad that was the first reply to that post.
Your mom is volatile
SSDs aren't volatile anymore. That image is outdated by several years. It doesn't even take into account that data doesn't fragment on SSDs.
Why don't you leave with THIS
*whips out labia*
The issue is that software exists in binary. Everything is powers of 2. But the average person doesn't speak powers of 2, they speak, at best, powers of 10. It turns out that 2^10 is pretty close to 10^3, so the metric "kilobyte" became a convenient shorthand even though "kibi" is the actual prefix. And onward down the line.
As file sizes have grown, the gap between what we call a file's size and the actual size of the file has grown. kilobyte vs kibibyte is negligible, ~2.5% difference. The difference between a terabyte and a tebibyte, on the other hand, is ~9.5% Maybe someday we'll start using the actual prefixes.
And don't even get started on networks using bits vs anything else using bytes.
way more than that
might be approaching a zettabyte by now
By streams people mean stuff like animefreak or actual streams like twitch/justintv ?
I think the same but sometimes I want to rewatch a single scene
And my autism won't let me save a single episode.
Reliability is having a backup.
Google alone has nearly 20 exabytes of storage already.
Maybe. Who knows, except google themselves.
"streaming" refers to watching a video using a web player
what you're thinking of is livestreaming, which is a subsection of streaming
Human eye can only see 480p why botter with more? thats just hipster bullshit you are doing when downloading 720p.
also why encode to 10bit if original .m2ts files and dvd files are at 8bit? and same with FLAC? i dont get it how you guys can listen over 20khz, are you dogs or something? because i am an human being.
Yes, the difference can be very easily seen.
DVD source material is usually ~7-10 mb/s. Blu-ray is 25-40 mb/s. Most re-encodes are far lower (that's partly the point of re-encoding) with DVD being 2-3 mb/s on average, and blu-ray being 8-15 mb/s... usually fairly ridiculous. Some groups filter out grain which in my mind destroys quality, but in their case, can reduce banding.... etc.
Newer codecs like h264 can save a lot of bits, but a good deal of material is encoded in h264 to begin with. Re-encoding to a significantly lower bitrate has a lot of loss, you can attempt to mask it with a few psychovisual models like x264 uses, and with higher bit depths to reduce errors / loss via higher internal precision. But the facts remain, you're going to have loss and artifacts of some kind. You'll see it somewhat less if you don't know what to look for, but some of it is visible regardless of who you are.
There are other cases where re-encoding can increase quality... but they're far more rare. People often don't realize how much sensory data they're really taking in at any given instant, and what their psyche is doing with it / how it affects an experience.
It refers to shitty stream sites that archive poorly compressed, bitrate starved versions of Hadena releases.
Livestreams are a different story. Assuming you're watching the raws.
>not cutting out that single scene
Then again, if it's not one single scene, but, for example two, I just tend to save the whole anime. Nobody knows when I will feel like watching a third scene from the same series.
I hope this thread is still in the archives 10 years from now, when we laugh at people freaking out over such low drive space.
I download most of my anime except for the very long running series in which I'm so far in I can't get out of, like One Piece.
I couldn't be arsed to download that so I watch it being streamed, is that acceptable?
Planning their backups must be a hell of a job in itself
And in laymans terms?
I am sure they have some sort of artificial intelligence working on this.
Bear you little shit
I know your shenanigans from League
I KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU
>>assigning a point value to a yes or no question.
I agree with you but that chart is retarded.
"As of 2013, the World Wide Web is estimated to have reached 4 zettabytes."
In layman terms: yeah, 2GB per 1080p episode is completely worth it, considering that you have a large enough screen.
Also, in layman terms the opposite: I bet most people watch on shitty 1366x768 screens, so 500MB per episode is a-okay.
It's an automated system, why the fuck wouldn't it be? You start automating long before you get to Google's size.
How long does a WD Black last?
I have around 2TB, including backlog, and I don't think I'll ever get over 3TB currently. Most of that is pointlessly high quality shit, too, like Space Battleship Yamato, clocking in at 33GB.
I never delete anything I like, either.
How anyone could ever get above maybe 6-8TB is just autism.
Please no, I don't want anyone to find out
SSDs are still more reliable than HDDs. I wasn't talking about the current situation, but the future when bigger SSDs are obviously more affordable. 250gb Samsung Evo costs like 150€ and 500gb costs only 250e. 100€ 1TB SSDs aren't that far away in the future.
I got a 24' 1920x1080, that qualifies 2GB episodes?
Just so you know, I KNOW.
what would happen if someone fired a nuclear bomb at google's data centers
>Human eye can only see 480p why botter with more? thats just hipster bullshit you are doing when downloading 720p.
You have a lot of underlying misconceptions and lack of understanding that make your higher opinion hard to really address. Start by looking into what resolutions are, and thinking about it a bit. Think about yourself relative to a playback device, and the nature of playback devices.
>also why encode to 10bit if original .m2ts files and dvd files are at 8bit? and same with FLAC? i dont get it how you guys can listen over 20khz, are you dogs or something? because i am an human being.
10 bits per pixel increases precision when re-encoding (less margin for error) and can even increase compression efficiency. You also have a lot less capacity for banding in particular, something even 8 bit per color RGB has problems with.
FLAC is lossless audio... I'm not sure why you'd want to destroy the original audio quality and risk introducing clipping and all other manner of errors for little to no benefit. Waves effect other waves, even if those waves are outside of human hearing, they effect what is within human hearing. There's also something to be said for subconscious perception we can't currently test for. Both of these play into why an MP3 / AAC can sound "flat" or "empty" relative to FLAC.
That being said, Dantalian's BDMV is worth it too. What was it, 7GB per episode?
>not downloading an episode and watching it immediately
>not deleting an episode after you watch it
>250gb Samsung Evo costs like 150€ and 500gb costs only 250e
nigga, for the price of two hard drives like those you can build a half-decent PC with a 1TB HDD
Casuals and plebs would get upset.
pedos would party in times square
Next in-line: the human eye can only see 24 fps!
Should I start making parchives for my backups so they don't degrade?
google would probably never recover
it wouldn't even need to be a nuke, a regular bombing/power sabotage would've been enough
I was under the impression that human eyes don't see in FPS
All of them? It's going to start the WW3 for sure.
I would laugh and continue using startpage.
>Over 85TB of anime, doujins, and manga erased from my cloud storage.
I knew Windows 10 was a bad idea guys, I-i don't know what to do anymore /a/. Hold me
The world would pretty much collapse
Just swap SATA cables every so often
they don't, but your brain can only process a limited amount of visual input within a second
however, it is way more than 24 FPS, as even 120 FPS displays make a visible difference over 60
Considering how 500gb SSD used to cost closer 1k€ couple of years ago, 250e is relatively cheap. The point is, SSD prices are coming down fast and soon people with money probably aren't buying HDDs anymore.
I think taking out all of Google's datacenters at the same moment will destroy the internet at least for some time. Like, a day or so.
In laymen terms, the base point is that a (significant) difference can be seen between the source, and a 500 mb re-encode. Even if the source is DVD. Re-encoding can introduce banding and other artifacts.
It's hard to measure the impact of a constant subconscious perception of the nature of a medium / its "quality", but it can be experienced.
Surely by now, they have a backup of their backup they backup once a year.
what does that do
I can believe this because I go through about 1 TB per season.
I don't even know what you mean by re-encoding.
>google losing data
you're exaggerating so much it's hardly even funny
sure, it would be a major blow for the internet, but only a temporary setback at most
Jesus christ op how did you manage that? Did you play with magnets or something.
It'd go back to yahoo.
Not even. It's not like the internet is stored at Google, just all of their shit, which in comparison to the internet as a whole is not very much.
There's a reason the internet will never cease to exist short of a global EMP, it's mostly decentralized.
Yeah, that's pretty much what I thought.
I have a 120hz monitor and you can really see the difference in how games look or even in the movement of the mouse
Yes and this is what you need
you have to however consider that 85TB hard drives don't exist

OP probably meant 8.5
DVD is not h264 to start with, though, afaik. They may have changed it recently? I know mpeg2 is usually used, and the audio is all different sorts, but h264, no.
So, out of the 10Mbitps in mpeg-2 in a 500MB episode we are down to 3Mbitps in h264.
Frankly, if both are encoded from the same lossless video, we shouldn't really be able tos ee a difference.
What should my block count be?
or any other important settings
Or we just could buy a jewpass.
What format are anime originally in?
Once I have the money to afford it, I'll be doing this on Blurays and DVD's, with all of the stuff I wont be replacing. Still need to replace some series with better versions, afterall.

Who knows. None of us work in an anime studio.
DVDs are mostly in mpeg2
BDs are mostly in h264 8bit
If you have a 1:1 ratio between original data and backup you should multipar 100% of the chunks. It's also good for data stored in large HDs for a long period of time to avert bit rot.
I remember when my C drive was 4GB
>tfw 500 mb hard drive
Yes it is.
By weird you mean shit right?
>Kara no Kyoukai
What about the original size?
who the fuck use that anyway
It wasn't me Christ
Dantalian's BDMV was about 6-7GB per episode.
DVDs are usually 500-1000MB per episode, if I am not mistaken.
What's going on here
Movies are distributed as a series of jpeg2k images and an audio track. One move takes around 500Gb.
I'd wager it's something like that.
1280x720, which is why that's the best size to get it in and everyone on /a/ will call out faggots that use 1080.
I'm pretty sure that guy mixed up the two types of data measurement, but metricfags like gibibytes and tibibytes.
how the fuck did you even collect and stash 85 fucking terra bytes of filth you fucking faggot jesus christ get a life shlomo
did you somehow download all the CP from the internet???
nsa-jidf employer confirmed
>Kara no Kyoukai
The source material comes on a disc, and your video and audio streams are "encoded" (ie they've been compressed, and their data is stored in a different way to make the files smaller). H264 / AVC is a form of this encoding. When you go to play a file back, it's decoded back to its raw YUV state (the actual image in this case), which is then rendered to your display.
Essentially, re-encoding is just decoding an encoded format back to the raw data it's supposed to represent, then "re"-encoding it. Usually to a new format, with different specific settings. This imposes loss of the original information.
so I shouldn't download 1080p blu-rays because they are mostly upscales?
>mfw I downloaded every episode of Bleach on my 3 megabit internet
>mfw it had less than 10 seeders
>mfw it took me almost a month of on and off downloading
>mfw it was 71 gigs and I've seeded 90 gigs
I can't wait until I can get fiber optic internet
This is a better explanations that the one on wiki.
1080 is 1080.
The anime studio knows how to best encode their images. Some actually are mastered at 1080p.
Nah, there are "professional" codecs and all, so as they are "professional", they are probably used.
That being said, I think Ryouichimo for example worked on flash?
Data measurements, Googlocalypse speculation, and that one guy that brought up Bake for no reason
I'm not sure about now, since most anime are done digitally, but back in the day, the format was originally physical cells that were handdrawn and painted. There was the character cells that have the movement, and the backgrounds. These were put together with the audio track.
So you could say that the size depended on the size of the cells, and that the original format was individual frames as pictures, probably the equivalent of PNG, and probably .wav for the audio, which was also combined from individual music, voice, and sfx tracks.
I once downloaded TES IV, capped at 3kbps.
I remember when people asked me what the hell I was going to do with my HUGE 512Mb MP3 palyer
I'm watching it while browsing this thread.

Depends on what you're downloading.
>constantly regetting shit because subs are shit
I'm really anal about subs, I've been trying to build up a collection but I don't want to ask /a/ about every series
Is there somewhere that has a list of what subs are decent for different shows and stuff like "this shows 1080 is just an upscale"
If it's originally a digital production, chances are, yes. If it had any kind of traditional animation on cels, the original masters are used, or the cels are rescanned. Since they don't have a resolution, it's not upscaled.
Lain is a good example. Only the portions with CGI had to be upscaled, the rest isn't.
Sorry dude but you're the one that's mixed up.
I'm talking about digital movies to cinemas.
It comes with its own encryption model where the movie theater can only show the movie at certain times, and after it expires the movie is no longer playable.
>having third world internet
>wasting 1080 pixels on drawn chinese piece of shit porn
thats why, you shouldn't be a faggot.
Is there a good place to find out how specific series' blu-rays were produced
Private trackers are your best bet but no.
I remember when my local university buying a 40 gb hardrive was a big deal
Is Henneko worth rewatching on 1080p BD?
Pretty sure it was the only show last year that was 1080p
Wow, didn't know that. Sounds pretty awful. I'd still wager modern-day anime studios don't really save it as series of images. Esp with all the cg.
Tell that to Frontier, apparently I live in a rural area so I get DSL.
A bonus feature is that it crashes at random times, often when I'm playing World of Tanks.
Anime without subtitles looks weird to me.
How can people watch anime without subs? It's almost as if they understood the weird language used.
Not really. It's a crapshoot.
Well, it's not worth watching or rewatching, but if you NEED to, do it in 1080p.
Nah, some shows these days are animated at above 720. Not quite 1080, but close. See Non Non Biyori, Hyouka, Chuu22, etc.
your best bet is to download every single release so you could potentially mux the best parts together
that's' what I'm planning on doing and it will just end up collecting dust
I once tried watching an episode raw, I ended up understanding way more than I expected. You should try it.
The amount you might notice it will vary depending on how far away you are from the screen while watching, but generally yes.
Oh wow that's a good point, I'm sure it wont be hard to find one of the thousand anons asking for best subs of each series
Maybe one day someone will start a good sub list on the /a/ wiki or something
The vast majority is 720, and those few examples are still not fully 1080, so going with 720 is still the best bet.
It's also broadcasted in 720, so for currently airing stuff it's the best regardless.
Many screen shots from futaba are the TV standard are 1440x810p, I'd wager it's somewhere around there.
>not liking henneko
ill just end it right here since i'm too tired to argue right now
I do that for series I really care about. Most series it's not worth that effort.
All I understand are overused phrases like "are you ok" or "watch out" (i'm not gonna look up the japanese spelling)
I doubt I'd understand much beyond that.
Eh, not usually. Older stuff (80's, 90's, early 2000's) are usually done on cels primarily. After that point, it depends on the workflow of the studio. You'll find older and more establish animation studios still tend to use cels in some way or another. Production IG does their base animation on cels, and then does the coloring, lighting, and shading digitally for example... how that translates to quality depends quite a lot.
Older shows tend to be done on cels. Newer shows might be upscaled, the nature of that upscaling vs the overall quality can depend.
I tend to get the BD Raws either way.
You need to kill yourself, or buy a better monitor.
I think the TV broadcasts are usually 800p, although the BDs are higher, maybe.
Next time burn it into your mind instead of hard drive
The entire wiki would consist of people putting a group on it and then someone responding with >group.

let me link you a post of mine from one other thread on /a/ at the current moment: >>101928283
There's more to a show than the words being said. Unless you're retarded you'll be able to piece together what's going on from the video itself.
I did this yesterday trying to find the best version of Haruhi to archive, and I didn't find anything helpful. I also read comments on the groups' release pages and everybody complained about every release and recommended muxing
The 720p is worth it, 50 something GB for Sakura is fine, but 140GB is an outrage.
Though I don't get your point.
Not to mention the cost.

Why not just get de.us? You are overthinking this. Bakabt tends to fuck up with the choosing mainly when it comes to subtitles, but every release is using a.f.k. anyway.
Is this some shitty TN panel?
>watching pokemon after Johto
I just made a parchive bigger than the actual movie file
Usually people who download aren't pleb enough to download 750 episodes of a kid's show that's been running 10 years past its prime.
I don't watch long series. By the time it gets anywhere hardly anyone else is watching it.
download in batches of like 20 episodes. delete after watching and then download the next 20.
I downloaded and watched all of Dragon ball in a version which was aired on Polish tv in 1980's(?)
It's got french dub and a polish reader and is in like 240p.
*unzips .zip file*
I don't know.
gotta catch em all
You gotta get in
to get oooouuu
ooouuu oooouu ooouu ooouut
I stand corrected.
But there are so many episodes and I want to Catch 'Em All
Anyway, Pokemon is great
Use different hard drives, i have a 600gb drive, 2 1TB drives and a 480gb sd
Fucking Polish TV.
I still have ear cancer from when I went to Poland once and watched a movie.
MILD MANNERED SUPERMEN

*poops a little*
why do nyaa comments attract such absolute crippling autism?
Sorry, I missed this response.
DVD is mpeg2, you're correct. Most groups tend to re-encode in h264, and although its compression efficiency is far better, there is still loss. The amount and type of loss depends on the encode settings used by the group, which in turn relates to its noticeability.
Like I said, it depends. Blu-rays the loss is obvious, DVD the obviousness depends. If someone were to post screens of a DVD re-encode, and someone with the raws were to post a screenshot of the exact same frame, you'd likely be able to see a difference. Then extrapolate that difference to being a constant effect per every frame.
I recently recovered an old hard drive and found the first episode of Gosick in 480p, the 7th episode of Kamisama no Memochou and a rar of CoalGirls Toradora. I dont know what the fuck I was doing.
So if 710 episode of Pokemon are 180 GiB, approximately how many episodes did OP have on his fictional hard drive with 85 TB of data (let's assume anime was a little more than half, the rest being manga/doujinshi)
That isn't bad at all
it's the people getting into arguments about the most autistic shit ever
I want some good high quality uncensored hentai.
Is that a combination that exists?
I didn't wanna get too heavy into it, but seeing that one on literally every new release gives me an extra cancer stack.
Every fucking time.
When I stop using only a shitty laptop, I am downloading this one.
>no one else is doing it.
>i don't want to be alone and uncool
You're a faggot.
Still makes me mad.
Assuming you aren't lying and covered in smegma, imagine how much of that shit was downloaded from torrents that have long died, or Megaupload?
That, my friends, is true death.
The day I get a new hard drive and move my music files there.
4chan will be dead in 10 years
Speaking of Nyaa, why is it that every torrent I get from there leeches slow as shit no matter how many seeders it has? Every other tracker works fine.
I probably am. I'm 30 and still have difficulty speaking to girls yet not to guys.
That can't be true considering both you and I, as well as everyone else, is here forever.
>Watch anime in 720p
>Watch anime in 1080p
>Notice almost no fucking difference
That would indicate the opposite.
>implying you won't be dead in 10 years
Nyaa works fine for me, but I haven't used it the past few days. If you've had the problem for awhile it's probably just you.
Most of it is upscaled.
3 or 4 days, but yeah I think it's just me, I just don't understand why only nyaa does that.
Wow dude, fix you eyes, there's
a 340p difference
it depends on the size of your set up and the distance you're viewing it from
That being said though, the difference on a desktop monitor is very small, but there
Subconsciously you will taken in more. You will find that you can remember more details from shows you watch in 1080p.
Keep 1080p for pre-digital anime or movies/OVAs
How is this even possible.
God knows 4chan is the only thing keeping /a/ from collectively killing themselves.
>Most of digital animation is upscaled.
FTFY. It's more of a mixed bag with cel.
That just means you didn't have a sister and probably had nerdy/geeky hobbies in grads school that prevented you from making any legitimate frienships with girls besides your mother.
No lie, I actually have about 8tb fully loaded with movies, anime, and manga.
/a/ is my only social interaction.
You happen to have the viewing distance chart?
I do have an imouto but she's a geek too, and this isn't the place to discuss how much of a loser I am.
>implying real people read any manga besides hentai
All encoded by [Coalgirls]?
I'd keep BDMVs if I could sustain tons of drives.
One day bluray burners will be common place and we can back up an entire tv series to one disc.
I know the one you're talking about, but I don't have it saved
>tfw just started making a lot of money
>tfw 1 months pay could get me an amazing computer with tons of storage space
fuck so excited
why do people still use optical media?
I have a BD burner though. They're pretty cheap. I think blank BDs are very expensive though thanks to the jews at Sony.
...You're bad a math...
>implying we are real.
I rip cds all the time. My car has no aux.
>Implying this isn't one big simulation all for that one person
You know who you are.
>A recordable Blu-ray disc (BD-R) can hold 25GB per layer, with dual-layer discs holding 50GB. BDXL discs that can hold 100GB of data are on the way. With due care, and kept free from scratches, a BD-R should last a lifetime. Hard disks are far more likely to fail, making recordable Blu-ray a strong primary or even secondary alternative.
12cm dual layer discs hold up to 50GB.
I think there are some prototypes with 16 layers and 500GB capacity.
That would take a fucking long time to delete if you can even store that much. Why couldn't you stop the process?
did you download the entire nyaa?
Or you could get an external drive, fill it up, and store it somewhere safe. Then every 5-10 years replace it.
I read something once that said something along the lines of it being more likely than not that you exist only in as a computer generated simulation in some future guys pseudo time travel device
I have to wonder how Will feels about this. I always imagined he was a cool guy in person.
I suppose his son being an insufferable douchebag teenager rather than scumbag asshole teenager shows he's done about as good a job as you can hope to as a celebrity.
1 TB optical disks with gold lasers have been tested. Supposedly some want to push them into market by 2015
5-10 years>a lifetime?
This is excluding money spent on either.
>lasers made of gold
Lasers shooting gold?
I somehow have to imagine OP working at CERN and accidentally throwing his Animus into the CMS.
Discs are too fragile.
Will is the one parading his children around in front of the media. Of course teenagers are going to act stupid, whether it be jock stupid, nerd stupid, or weeaboo stupid, yet Will is the one forcing them into the limelight while they're going through this phase.
And HDDs somehow aren't?
So storing an external HD>Storing discs?
As long as he appears on tv, he's pretty proud
Did you accidentally rm -rf /* or something?
Yes. Only thing you have to worry about is water. I have to give that to optical media, at least water wont fuck it up.
Nyaa is way over 800tb.
>storing something with moving parts is superior to a disc read by a laser
>Implying the parts are moving when it's being stored
I just realized
Wouldn't it take like a week to process deleting all that data
Did you really forget to click on "Cancel" for an entire week
Well. there are over 105 1TB+ torrents on nyaa.
>not storing all your data in the fridge
They might if you get hit by an earthquake or something.
Doesn't matter. Moving parts are breaking parts.
enjoy your shrinkage
The problem with storage drives is that the connectors are outdated by 10 years and Earth's magnetic field interfering with the stored bits.
All forgotten technologies
Damn, I only have 10 terabytes and that seemed alright.
It's called compression. Read a fucking book.
I actually downloaded one of the previous versions. Took me weeks holy shit It's been almost a year and I never even listened to a single track
Like your dick.
That's why I have a special notebook where I write down the binary for all of my data.
DNA storage is the future.
>4 monitors and not 3
>520 and a 770 and onboard graphics
What the fuck is your problem
>all data has your unique "DNA Signature" associated with it
NSA please go.
...Or is it the past?
You niggers have off-site backups, right? You're prepared when a tsunami hits your city and destroys everything, right?
Not 4 monitors, I have 3 monitors and a 65" tv.
The TV is run only on the 520 and the 3 monitors on the 770. I don't see a problem with this. Onboard is used by nothing.
>Living on any coast.
That isn't as bad.
>b-but muh 8.1
Win8 is the Vista for Win9.
I think I'll have more problems than my harddrives when a tsunami hits kansas.
Just did a quick search on Amazon:
These are as cheap as CDRs were 10 years ago, and you could probably get them cheaper wholesale if you know where to get them.
>enjoying an inferior OS
I haven't found a single version of Linux that can't already do what Windows 7 can, besides the hardcore shit that almost no one ever does (systems administration, etc).
>living on a coast
Protip: Kara no Kyoukai != Kyoukai no Kanata
That's why I keep all of my data in an alternate closed space dimension.
His sons just posting dumb shit. Lots of kids do that.
That guy clearly has a shit tier setup and doesn't know how glorious it feels to be surrounded by monitors.
I don't use 8.1, I use 8 and I haven't seen that metro UI since the day I installed the OS.
I did, once upon a time. It was called MegaUpload.
>not uploading your animu into your cum
>not transferring them to your bros
I don't have time to troubleshoot everything.
Maybe when there are no more alternatives and the other two are absolute dogshit. But not now, I'm not ready yet.
>I don't use 8.1, I use 8
Then you're fucking retarded.
BSD and Linux are great for a btrfs/ZFS storage computer.
Enjoy your bloated OS with no package management, no freedom and filled with bugs.
Don't forget to reboot on those updates too.
There is literally no reason to not be using 8.1 if you don't use metro.
I'm sorry that I'm missing out on all those metro UI improvement in that update. I disabled it to begin with so who cares.
I use the bus.
Just realize this too: OP was speaking about 85GB, not 85TB.
Get your license you fucking retard.
Enjoy your nogaems and googling every single problem you run across.
I live in an area where having a car is obsolete.
>Living in space
Fuck off, we don't like your kind here.
The vast majority of windows updates don't require you to restart anymore. Stop thinking windows is still windows xp. Kernal level updates need a restart I guess, but I still have an ssd so it takes 10 seconds.
Where i live we have a shield called bajacalifornia.
Sounds like you've never used it. Windows 8 is perfectly fine once you learn to just keep explorer.exe pinned to your taskbar and/or use the actually pretty decent search function.
>Thinking a tsunami won't hit you just because you live inland
It's like you guys never done drugs before
Enjoy your waste of money that couldve been spent on waifu.
You're actually just too dumb to configure wine. All the games I play work fine.
>googling every single problem you run across
So just like windows except there's actually good documentation available to solve your problems.
Since 8? Because in 7 I had to restart a fuckton of times.
I have a $5000 shrine dedicated to my waifu already. Best months wage ever spent.
Nothing but lag.
Or if you disable metro with a program like start8 or startisback and forget metro after a day.
Just build another you dumbo
Or is she not worth it to you?
I live in the mountains.
I've got no worries about anything.
The worst part about this is that linux has so many obscure errors that trying to google any issue usually turns up a ton of other shit, so you end up combing through 3-year-old posts on dead forums looking for a fix.
Isn't Linux intentionally made confusing so that the users can feel better about themselves?
avalanche earthquakes volcano?
Waifu's aren't real and never will be real.
flaming sharknado rapists
Get a load of this fag
How do waifus work?
All I have to worry about is a dormant volcano, and I'm outside of the path of destruction if it ever goes up.
Anon please there is only so much merchandise to be created for her.
Mousepad, pillow, keychain, blanket, phone case, thumbdrive, lighter, credit card print, posters, wall scrolls, etc.
>and never will be real.
Delusional as fuck. We're already entering the pre-waifu age with VR.
Save for constant shitty internet
>20 years from now, a TB will be the equivalent to 1MB 20 years or so ago was
>40 years from now petabyte will be small talk and it would be about the exabytes
>80 years from now, we'll either be dead due to bathing in nuclear fires or heart attacks or have our minds stored in 2d
>lose everything on old hdd
>lose all motivation to do anything on new
Thats what you think.
you mean "lose motivation to do anything"
>Living 108 years.
Not sure how i should feel about this.
In like 5 years a single TB will be worthless.
>Implying I wouldn't bring all my animu with me in that scenario
Which mountains do you live in my high altitude friend?
Why does it hurt? It's been 2 years now and I still feel like killing myself.
I-I just want my files back.
This is why I always have a second set off HDDs as a backup.
And we still won't be able to hold 100 years of anime.
Near Rainier. I don't have to worry about shit other than rain.
Are HDDs waterproof?
>In the future you will need 16 PB of RAM minimum to play VR MMO #13467 on lowest settings 40 years from now
Come to beautiful colorado where there is never any weather except for when you least expect it.
Hahahahahahaa how can losing motivation be real like nigga just download it nigga hahahahahaha just click your mouse
Add about 10x the amount of power and today's GPUs will be the next gen CPUs.
>Lose a storage drive
>Can't remember which series you had on it
I don't think there's a worse feel in the world.
these retards actually care about other people's choice for watching cartoons
Nah, I like the cold and the fresh air.
I do sometimes save single episodes.

>DELETING 85 TERABYTES
>17 DAYS, 4 HOURS REMAINING
I wonder if I should press cancel
>Storing anime or manga
Why? How many of you rewatch shit?
I only rewatch things years later and it's usually easy as fuck to find again.
Why not just delete a couple things every day.
>Saving anime without having a database
>Not having a SAS array vault in your house.
Step up senpai.
Fair enough, Oregon/Washington area is fucking beautiful.
I just don't lurk enough.
When the internet apoclypse happens and you have nothing to watch you will only blame yourself.
>we will have sensory manipulating devices within the next 80 years
>we will experience what its like to be the little girl within the comfort of our homes
That is fucking smart.
Kept waiting for something to move. I'm honestly pretty disappointed.
If the internet apocalypse happens I'll just kill myself. Why would I care about the limited amount of anime on my storage that I'll eventually run out of? What then?
Unless you're rich it's pointless.
You don't see it move, your hear does.
What is this and what does it do?
Go to anime swap meets.
haha you posted that reaction picture replying to that post. what a cowinkydink
That would mean leaving my room and interacting with people I wont like.
Then kill yourself, nobody will stop you.
Why would I? The internet is still alive.
On another note, how was Robotics;Notes? I've been meaning to watch/read it for a while.
I lost all my 4chan images twice, it was painful.
This is what a REAL raid server looks like. Thousands of these host things like facebook. I nabbed a decommissioned one from my college for 100 bucks.
>you never knew how much you cared until they left you
Put out an add saying you'll be willing to give someone a copy of you LoGH and Bible Black files for some copies of their stuff. Should attract some cool /a/nons.
Hell. I'm sure there's at least one of these hosting 4chan.
I enjoy my silence and lack of AC.
Could be better. There were some cool parts though.
Mostly her smile.
Damn, that an impressive find. How's the integrity of the drives though?
It was disappointing, but I found my waifu so it was worth it.
Everyone knows moot hosts 4chan on a macmini.
They're just SAS drives. It uses parity so if a drive fails you can hot swap without losing data.
I ain't watching that shit.

I can't believe I risked my job for a few thousand dollars. What the fuck was I thinking.
>few thousand dollars
Enough to get a shitty car.
It's basically the same performance.
It's actually much simpler once you get out of the Baby Duck Syndrome. Fuck me if I'm supposed to figure out the registry.
I make ~4k a month after taxes. It was not worth the risk.
That's not a whole lot of money.
Are you in the clear for it yet?
I'm in prison and they're raping my ass right now.
Being a sarcastic asshole to a legitimate question makes you cool.
It's a pretty good amount considering I have no schooling and I'm only 21.
It was a year ago so yeah.
Why so angry? I think it was just a joke.
>modding at the same rate
Certs or cock sucking?
...Or lies, bullshit, and other such faggotry?
>your hear does
ya blew it
This makes me wonder. Drawn CP is already a grey area in some countries, right? Well as stimulants and virtual porn becomes more and more advanced how will CP laws change with it? At some point the only difference between fake CP mister lister's white van is that a little girl got fiddled in one and in the other she didn't. Will that be legal? If so, at that point will CP start becoming socially acceptable because there's no longer any harming children?
Lies and bullshit mostly. I'm just really good with interviews.
Made my resume look good, and I have the tech knowledge to back it up even without schooling. During most interviews they don't even ask tech questions unless you're a programmer or something.
I got really lucky. I feel I don't even deserve this job.
Me and one other guy both got hired on at the same time starting as contract employees. He has past experience, real schooling, a wife, kids, a life in general, really upbeat, sociable, likeable, etc. But the contract was for 6 months, and after that, only one of us was going to get hired on as a full employee. I got it somehow.
What would you back it up to, magnetic tape? Enjoy your unreliable archival format.
You're a faget for having that luck. But having been in the industry for decades, I gotta give you a high five. Its a shitty industry full of pricks who think they're better than you. I've been laid off from quite a few jobs. Ride that train.
The only place in my entire life I've been successful is work related. I think all my luck ends up there and there alone.
Expensive as fuck. Even if you went with Amazon Glacier, 85TB is gonna cost almost $900 a month.
Thanks I didn't know this existed.
Based /a/non. Money can buy luck. Enjoy it.
