The Hard Drive: A Glimpse Into Peoples' Weird Lives
I have been busily repairing and rebuilding a number of peoples' computers this past week and am constantly amazed by the weird stuff I find on their hard drives.
For instance, I was backing up one of my manager's computers and stumbled across all of the paperwork for his will. Curiousity got the better of me and I had to see what he was giving to whom. His will was pretty straight forward and the only funny part was when he started to divvy up his guns to his different kids. Only in Idaho can one justify having twenty guns. Sadly, I was not in his will.
Yesterday, I was working on another computer and the guy wanted me to save all of his Favorites from Internet Explorer. Just out of curiousity I looked to see what bookmarks he had and I kid you not, he had a local escort service bookmarked. I wish I had not just deleted his cookies because it was a login site and you had to be a member of this secret whoring circle to get in. Damn. People are messed up though. The sad part is that I actually feel bad for the hookers who he pays to sleep with him. If I were in their shoes, I would down some GHB before getting dirty with this guy. Ugh...it makes me want to burn my clothes.
