The last eight years were fun, but I ran out of space while trying to compile a project, and, well, your number came up. I'm sorry...

I need a bigger SSD. I launched Visual Studio (which I rarely use so it only had the default extensions installed) to clone and build the new Windows Terminal to see what it's like. Had to download over 10GB of extensions and features first, and then compiling the project ate up every last byte of remaining space.

    think I woulda deleted visual studio instead but then I might be biased 😅

    @M1sf3t To be fair, I ended up reaching the point with the sheer number of mods I had installed where it would crash before I could even leave Helgen... so a reinstall was needed anyway.

    I freed up 64GB by uninstalling it and deleting the mods. That's ridiculous.

    @EmberQuill that makes sense i guess. I wondering the other day how skyrim had managed to stay relevant these past couple of years. I'm still playing the 360 so of course it is for me, but for everyone else I mean.

    @M1sf3t Mods make it last. Like all of Bethesda's games, Skyrim is ridiculously moddable. New quests, new locations, better textures, redesigned characters, new lore, and all sorts of other things can combine to make the entire game feel fresh and new every time you play it. Plus Skyrim is a stupidly-huge game to begin with.

    @EmberQuill I need to get back into computer gaming, I've been trying avoid it until I can afford to build a decent machine.

    Early endeavors is part of the reason for all the ms hate, never could seem to keep a machine up to date long enough to play any of the new titles coming out.

    Console gaming these days has gotten so expensive between that and all the mods available, it would seem time to give it another shot.

    @M1sf3t Depending on what qualifies as a "decent machine" you may be able to afford it now. Especially since tech isn't advancing nearly as fast as it used to. My whole computer is using old components from a few years ago and still running everything fine. My CPU is six years old and I only recently started to think about replacing it.
