    Confessions of a software junkie/horder

    Advertisement



    Hi, my name is Jay. I have a problem, I horde software.

    I have 4 different browsers. I have 4 sets of weather Widgets. 3 notepads, 35 games, 4 launchers, 7 themes. This is a smidgen of what's installed. I have 2 versions of the same ROM, 2 versions of the same theme, 4 kernals, all the same just different versions. I have 150+ epubs, 4 different readers and I don't know how many utilities. None of this includes the thumb drives with software.

    I can't bring myself to delete any of it. I may need it, someone may need it. Am I alone? Someone else has to do the same thing.

    I need help.

    Lol, I used to for that.... "if I'm ever in...." situation. Now it all resides on my Mac. Only download and sync what I know I will use. Of course that's still over 100 apps. Do they get used all the time, no but they do get used. The stuff on my Mac(and PC, yes I have one, I own a Andriod,lol) is there for just the reason you describe Jay.

    We need a reality show, something along the intervention lines. Lol

    We need a support group! I am with you Jay, I regularly go through my computer to try and clean the hard disk, and cant bring myself to delete my software in case I may need it. It has slowly got worse as disks grew larger, instead of megabytes it became gigabytes and now terrabytes. I recently moved house and was forced to through out my floppy disks, my 3.5" floppy disks, 'cos as my wife said I no longer had hardware that would read them! I need help too

    I tried to delete some after posting this. Did a backup instead, and downloaded another version of my ROM.

    Convinced I may need that stuff...even though I still have the first version of my ROM, and its now on 6.1. Heck, I still have beweather beta for android. Just can't get rid of it.....

    There already is one - "Hoarding" - it's just that Jay is doing it on his phone!
