UPDATE:

 

>leave brand new 5-terabyte external hard drive with the guy on my home from work on Monday, half an hour before the store closes

>he begins transferring my files; tells me to come back the next day

>come back yesterday, approximately 22 hours later

>files are less than a percent finished transferring

>the guy has no idea how long it will take to transfer them all

>give him my number and tell him to call me back once they're done

 

It feels exactly like leaving your dog at the vet to undergo a complicated surgery.

That's still soooooo much

 

A lot of it has to do with my paranoia that the doujins that I don't download will disappear forever due to the websites that host them getting shut down. A year and a half ago there was this big scare that Sad Panda would get taken down due to changing laws regarding lolicon in the country where the servers were hosted. If the site owner hadn't managed to move the servers to Moldova, we would've lost the equivalent amount of data that it takes to run the International Space Station for ten years.
