Photo Album breakdown

I recently switched from iPhoto to using Aperture on my Macbook.  The main reason for doing so was the ability to create new libraries on remote drives such as my Drobo FS.  While there are some 3rd party apps do this with iPhoto I didn’t want to relay on a 3rd party piece of software that might stop getting updated eventually.
Since I was able to split up my iPhoto library into multiple libraries I decide to group them all by year as I figured that would be the best way to start organizing my photos in the long run.  After I got everything separated I wanted to see how much space I was using and get a break down.  So here you have it almost 76gb of photos ranging from 1995(old scans) until 2011.

1995 – 328M
2001 – 200M
2003 – 1.1G
2004 – 1.2G
2005 – 2.9G
2006 – 8.1G
2007 – 2.9G
2008 – 1.1G
2009 – 2.1G
2010 – 26G
2011 – 30G

Found this kind of interesting so I thought I would make a pointless post about it.

OS X Lion: My first impressions

I have had the option to run dev copies of OS X Lion for sometime now, but decided to wait till it hit the App Store.  So needless to say I bought it as soon as I could and have been toying with it ever since.
When I first installed it I was noticing a lot of issues with thing just not working as well as they used to, this led me to doing a fresh install of Lion just to make sure all of my old settings had been cleared out from previous installs.  By reinstalling I was also able to clean up my laptop quite a bit and regained over 100gb of space by moving items to offsite locations.
