The problem with cleaning…

March 16th, 2007 by Troy Goodfellow · 2 Comments · Me

I inevitably find something to really piss me off when I clean my office. I found a paper CD sleeve with an account code printed on it.

There is, of course, no indication which game the sleeve is for, nor does the code have any clues. I may never be able to uninstall whatever this is.

Yeah, I know it’s my fault for not keeping the discs in the sleeves all the time, but when I get a game is it too hard to have a distinctive package? Like a jewel case? Or DVD box?

The good news is that seeing the top of the desk and most of my immediate floor space makes me feel a bit better about the week’s events. (Not to mention some good news from someone very special to me.) Plus my new Sabermetric Baseball Encyclopedia arrived today.

    I maintain a text file with all of my account/activation codes just to avoid this very problem. That reminds me; I should probably print out a hardcopy for archival purposes.

    I used to do that. Then I stopped.
