@robert I think a lot about this! Are you documenting your experience of building up your library anywhere other than on Mastodon?
@PhilthePill interesting idea; I might now that you mention it.
@robert I'd recommend also ripping those CDs and keep the rips in a lossless format: even commercial CDs can suffer from CD rot, and become unreadable.
Luckily, I found out after I had lost just one disc...
@valhalla right. Need to sort out long term storage options.
@robert personally I use a git-annex repository with all of the rips. One copy with full data is on an usb HD kept near my desktop, another is on an hd attached to a mediabox (debian based) that is connected to the stereo, and that's what I usually listed the music from.
On my laptop etc. I keep a checkout of the repository without the data, to be able to see what I have while not taking too much space.
I also used to have a copy of everything at a relative's house, but I need to refresh it.
@robert I have been doing this lately too. It’s been a lot of fun.
