- To take the backup of all the (important) data on my laptop on karma.
- To create some space in karma by shifting unnecessary stuff from it.
Some of the backed up data was initially in karma, but I did the roundabout thing of transferring them all to pramaana, then backing them up to karma again.
Well, that would appear a little roundabout. The idea was to create the landscape of data in pramaana first, then decide which one to backup. Now everytime I take backup, the process of taking backup is repeatable.
It didn't appear very straight to Karthik. To me, that was the way to go.
As I remarked, he's an optimisation guy; and anything non-optimal wouldn't appeal him. I am programming guy; and modularity is the thing for me.
We both are true to our trades! :)
