For the old folks…remember Windows 95. It used a FAT file system, not the more modern NTFS (for Windows). It needed to be defragged to run at optimal speeds. I loved the entire idea of a defrag. It was like cleaning up a room, putting each thing in it’s place.
I would watch it work and it would sooth my mind. Everything in it’s place.
Sometimes I think about my own brain and how it needs to defrag sometimes. It speeds up thought for the next few days. I was just staring out the window and realized my brain started to defrag.
We can’t be productive 100% of the time. We need to put thoughts into perspective and order.
Now with NTFS, of course, we don’t need defrag. It has left, never to return. I miss it though. I miss feeling that the computer and I have cleaned up and can run faster.
We have things, then they are gone. The world invents new things. Time marches on.
