Why am I doing this to myself.
The intent was to clean house. The unfortunate reality is that everything feels super messy right now. It took me the larger part of today to get my mailboxes and browser settings moved over correctly, and now I still have a good few handfuls of individual applications and files left to go. On the one hand, moving all these things over manually allows me to tightly filter what I retain. On the other, it’s such a fucking pain in the ass.
It’d be much better if the operating system could tell me which files belonged to any given application. Like a list of things it needs to function, places it has stored state, etc. But no, I have to go hunting for configuration files spread all over. And don’t even get me started on the bullshit that unfolds when you’re trying to import them into a newer version of the application.
More hard work on this tomorrow. Need to try my best not to lose focus of the “do things better” goal.
