I still think this is where all the wisdom is.

Facebook groups are nice but I think all of the gurus are still on this site.




I am sure that many of you are like me and have acquired a ton of add on stuff.


My problem has always been organizing it. I think I have finally come up with a system.


And I am sure there are many dvd inventory programs out there but I try to keep how many programs I install to a minimum and weed through my programs and delete what I don't use. I think that might give the registry a break.


At any rate. If I burn a dvd with flight sim add ons I give it a number now. Then I use the dir > content.txt


command so I have a text file that shows the contents of the dvd. Then I e mail it to myself or keep it in google docs.


Eventually I might just make a dvd called index when I have enough of those txt files.


Only because it is probably just a matter of time before google gets hacked the way things are going for now.


I have had two gmails that I have kept for at least 5 years each. So the important stuff I do keep for archive. When I got rid of the first one I started a new one. Needless to say changing your main e mail causes a ton of problems.


At least this way it might limit how many dvd s I have to go through any time I want to find something.


I know I could always re download most of it however sometimes really good freeware does cease to be freeware if it makes it big.

When making such evaluations, you can also consider that some folks still don't use Facebook or other so-called social networking sites. It's the fad, but I've never seen a point in using such things, especially with all the drawbacks.
