  Thank you Cory Doctorow
is one of those cool suave webby names I have always wanted to mention in a post, I have also been very busy clearing stuff I might not need from my hard-drive so that (a) I can defrag it before we go away and (b) so that there is more than 10GB free to store all the video and photos we expect to take. I was stuck at 24.7GB free (about 3x what I started with, so no mean feat) when I read this post: "HOWTO Get a load of hard-disk space back" by Cory D on BoingBoing. Just go File | Compact Folders in Thunderbird, and Presto! I now have 27.5GB free and extra 2-3GB in a couple of minutes. And even better according to commenter Frumious

There is a setting to compact space automatically.

Look under prefs->advanced->network & disk space

Then click the 'compact folders when it will save over _____ KB' checkbox.

Adjust the numerical value as desired.
The brilliance just got better, I may not have to remember to "compress" ever again.

By the way, I am trying out BlipTV as a place to store the videos, I have uploaded some trials to The World of the Old Testament, of course the interviews with theology students and teachers in Sri Lanka will go on Wordpress, who have just upped the free storage to 3GB, what good timing!
