I've got an M1 laptop on Monterey. I'm running out of HD space.
Does anybody know what the fuck this 612Gb of "System Data" is?
- noo feechurshans_glib
- cache, osx downloadsshapesalad
- Def. some kind of unpurged cache or lots of app data from Steam, Adobe, Google, Gargageband/Logic/FC... etc.evilpeacock
- Hit up your user and sys Library folders listed with "Calculate all sizes" turned on and you'll prob. find what it is.evilpeacock
- Porn disguised as system dataNBQ00
- Yea after a bit of googling it seems most of that was After Effects caches found in the library. Jeesh.Hayzilla
- Buy a cheap and fast 100 gb SSD for your AE cache. All that read/writing of cache will age your Macs HD and increase the chance of it breaking.shapesalad
- Same for Illustrator/PS etc.... set them all to a cheap + fast HD you use only for cache.shapesalad
- Adobe software filling a hard disk up with fucking loads of useless tmp and cache files? My, I am surprised.Nairn
- lol wtf have you donested
- so you hid porn in the AE cache folder and forgot about it :)sted
- delete your hidden folder stuff. at least thats how my macbook got full.milfhunter
- @shape, I have my temp files set away from boot/apps SSD and illy still manages to periodically fill the boot with internal temp working filesNairn
- Using Sketch? https://medium.com/s…grafician
- Was just going to say, purge all your after effects caches. Edit > Purge > All Memory & Disk Cacheslappy
- As already mentioned put your AE (and everything else Adobe, Maxon, etc.) caches on a dedicated (fast) external. It'll take a ton of wear and tear off OS SSD.evilpeacock
Today I received a response from a Street Art festival I applied to.
I was not accepted to take part in the festival (life hasn't been kind to me since I moved).
I wish everybody a great week!
- F**k, good luck next time, don't give up man!OBBTKN
- Just make your own festival, they don't desereve you anyway.Longcopylover
- Ah rough dude, get out do some fun painting, I always find festivals stressful to paint in anyway.PhanLo

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I'm the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.

Started watching for the first time over Christmas...just finished. Phew...what a ride!
- I'm ready to re-watch it again - it's been so long, I've forgotten most of it. Partner's not so keen though :(Nairn
- Hard to keep track and process everything when you binge it. May try again in a few years and take it slower.BusterBoy
- I'm still watching Better Call Saul, so I was thinking when I'd finished I'd go straight into a BB rewatch. See how Slippin' Jimmy's back story makes it feel.Wolfboy
- Good idea wolfmonospaced
- Wolfboy, once you do you will feel so much more sorry for Saul's office assistant, that all ties together in season 5 of bcsBonSeff
- BETAMAX tapes!Elwin74

- When will I ever learn *not* to post anything here until I've had at least one cup of coffee? Ugh. Covfefe.Continuity
- The best thing was re-recording over tapes and running out of space to write what was on it, then knowing contents only by the place you kept the tape.shapesalad
UK is Fucked
Further to my much-disliked strike whinge the other day - I need to get my passport renewed. It's fine 'til October, but I need to play safe with the EU's 3 month rule requirement, and given I only travel to the EU, that's kind of important. In a couple of weeks workers at the Passport Office are engaging in a 5 week strike. That will lead to an inevitable backlog of orders, so I'm going to have to somehow time this perfectly as I need to send my current passport in with the application which in turn means that I can't travel then. Given I'm supposed to be going to Europe three times across an even spread between now and October, that does really rather fuck things up.
I'm not whinging at the strikers here. I'm just whinging.
Why does life suck so much in this country these days?
- I only realised my situation this morning (I didn't know about the EU's 3 month thing). If I had done so, I'd've done this shit prior.Nairn
- re: my last line < there.
The answer is "It's the fucking Tories".
I know that.Nairn
- People wanted to shag a union jack, that's why everything sucks.PhanLo
- You can see that UK since 2015 is on a downward trajectory. Move if you can. I have a exit plan.shapesalad
- I'm only still here because my EU partner can get the best kind of job that she can here, so here I am. Me too, as sad as it is to say.Nairn
- It's prudent to do a passport renewal in-personzardoz
- i too got hit by the eu's insistence on a 3 month cushion, but that's ok becasue brexit has worekd well in every respect.hans_glib
- i also found out too late and it was with all the pandemic slowdown so i ended up having to pay thru the nose for the passport people to expedite it.hans_glib
- when i went to the passport office to collect it, sure enough, there were all the workers sitting around doing fuck all, but expediting like crazy.hans_glib

Signs your getting old?
When you hate Discord.
- What's Discord?lemmy_k
- Opened it once, guess I am well into the "already old" categoryformed
- For someone who has been through icq, msn, irc, skype, myspace, facebook etc, there is an underlying intuition that discord too shall pass, there is no pointdrgs
- in investing time in itdrgs
- ICQ and MSN. Good god.Continuity
- It's not about the platform, it's about the people.
