What have i accomplished this fine Saturday, the start of a well deserved three day weekend? Well, I worked until noon after getting up at 4am so there’s that.
Finally showered (yeah I work in my sweat pants and tshirt on Saturday’s from home. My remodeled office is kickn ass btw) and grabbed some lunch.
Now I’m browsing through my computer for pictures using Picasa and I come across an indexed ImageCache folder. It resides in the user/local/Microsoft/….directory. In it I have found several thousand cached pictures from the web that were never cleared out. Most are from years ago when I had a FB account.
As i scroll through them I see a bunch of my old friends and hangouts and events etc. They’re actual full size pictures, no thumbnails. How odd that these would be indexed and stored locally. Rather presumptuous of FB to do that but I believe back then that browsers relied more heavily on caching items due to slow internet speeds and slower computers than it does now.
Either way I now have snapshots into history of a time that was a different me. One that shared more than I do now until I realized these people weren’t my friends after but just pieces of my past come back to haunt me.I’ve considered on occasion firing up my FB again but after looking thru some of these posts, I’ll pass thank you.
The ironic thing is there is no porn in this folder. Surely I viewed porn as much then as I do now? LOL Just as well, I have my Tumblr dash for that. ( o Y o )
