A Little Zealotry

If your creative work involves computers, I want you to consider this very seriously.  Like all recent converts, I’m a zealot.  If you have ever added up all the time you spend waiting on your hard drive to do its thing, it comes to a significant drain on your creative time.

There is a device called a Solid State Drive (SSD) that makes the problem of waiting for your hard drive to finish loading your data more or less go away entirely, or at least make things very much better.  The time wasted is much, much shorter.  It costs a few hundred pounds / dollars to replace your computer hard drive with an SSD and you need some cloning software (which tends to come for free with these SSD drives nowadays) to complete the job.  You also need some courage and some computer maintenance clues.  However, many people will be able to accomplish this upgrade without undue difficulty.

If you install your SSD in place of your rotating media hard drive, I guarantee your creative experience will be utterly transformed.  For perhaps the first time ever, you will be able to create at the speed of thought.  For a few hundred pounds or dollars, that’s the bargain of the century.

About tropicaltheartist

You can find out more about me here: https://michaeltopic.wordpress.com/. There aren’t many people that exist in that conjunction of art, design, science and engineering, but this is where I live. I am an artist, a musician, a designer, a creator, a scientist, a technologist, an innovator and an engineer and I have a genuine, deep passion for each field. Most importantly, I am able to see the connections and similarities between each field of intellectual endeavour and apply the lessons I learn in one discipline to my other disciplines. To me, they are all part of the same continuum of creativity. I write about what I know, through my blogs, in the hope that something I write will resonate with a reader and help them enjoy their own creative life more fully. I am, in summary, a highly creative individual, but with the ability to get things done efficiently. Not all of these skills are valued by the world at large, but I am who I am and this is me. The opinions stated here are my own and not necessarily the opinion or position of my employer.
