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.
