When it comes to having an organized desk area, I'm the first person to admit I'm not the greatest at keeping everything tidy. Since I fix computers for friends and family, I've seen worse "desk organization" than mine. So I guess I'm not that bad after all.

But to be honest, some of the desk organization problems I've seen (including mine) are not the fault of their owners. It's mostly because we all love our monitor…or two.

Which is a big reason we have less space on our desks. Were not going to downsize our monitors for more desk space.

Anymore on the Internet, just having a user name and password for logging on to web sites, is not enough for access.

Increasingly more and more web sites, especially financial sites such as banks, credit card companies, or anything that involves personal information, now require a combination of user name, password and answers to security questions.

I admit it. When it comes to chewing up disk space, I can easily fill up giga-bytes of data in no time flat which usually leaves me with little available disk space.

Sure, I guess cleaning up old files will get me that much needed disk space back…only on a temporary basis. Sooner, than later, I'm just going to find other music mp3's, video files, what ever, and download to my computer, that will once again…you got it, fill up hard drive space.

So it was time for me to get a bigger internal hard drive that I thought would never prevent me from running out of disk space.
