How many U2 pics on your hard drive?

I feel sorry for our hard drives. All this *rightclicksave* stuff going on are really filling them up. They are our treasure chests, and I always worry one day will be one pic too many and I'll lose them

How many do you have, confess, we're all guilty

I have 3,726 pics, and only about 100 are non-u2 related, so that's how bad I am. Even though I have so many, I don't even save every single pic as some of you have said you do. My number is extremely high considering I only save the ones I really like. They are mostly Bono alone, but I have about 300 band pics and at least a few dozen of the other guys alone. But, yes, probably around 3000 are just Bono

So here's the test:

How many pics will you admit to having on your hard drive(s)?

How do you save pics? Every U2 pic you see? Only the ones you like? Only certain guys? During the tour, did you save every concert shot?

I really don't have that many...Of course, I've only had this computer since August...

I think I have more on my walls than on my computer.

I have close to 100 but that doesn't include the collages I've made for wallpapers and the 50 or so in my shared files that I use for my screen saver. My regular files are mainly Edge but my shared files are mainly U2.

I've only had this computer since July and when I first got it I deleted a lot of pics after I made wallpapers.

I think my pictures are probably 1/2 Edge, 1/4 Bono, and the rest Adam & Larry/U2 group shots.

There's tons of pics that I love but I've seen them on so many sites that I don't keep them because if I wanted to use them for something I can always find them easily.

I learned the hard way not to count on that. They may not always be there. Some great sites, like moonofblindness, churchobono, thethreesunrises, and u2zone, have vanished overnight. People just lose them or take them down. That's why I want them on my computer so barring a disaster I'll always have them. I guess it's because I've had so many bad experiences with stored pics. I once had a webshots page of over 1000 pics, all named and labeled, in 27 different albums. Then one day I checked in, and poof, they were all gone They said my account did not exist. So I keep looking for a place to keep them. I wish I could make a website, but some people have had trouble with those too.

But the good thing about PLEBA is, since everyone here has so many, if anyone wants something I'm sure somebody will have it!

323!

And they are all seperated into folders according to band member, time period (album), etc.

I had more, but my computer crashed and I lost a lot of them!

LOL! My friends all think that I'm a little crazy!

I dont store my U2 pics on my hard drive, I store them on a Floppy Disks. Im really good about keeping my Hard Drive clean.

My U2 pics are mostly of Edge. The total of U2 pics I have im not sure of but im sure its well over 1000.

I have around 200. Almost all are Bono shots and I'd have more but since one time the computer broke, I don't save that many. But I feel soo tempted to save EVERY new pic I see

Kitty: God woman! That's a treasure you keep there!

I have absolutely no idea how many pics I have... I have quite a few CDs of U2 pics... that's how I store 'em cuz they just take up too damn much space on my hard drive... especially all the HOT Larry ones

4,348 (taking away the accidental repeats and those pics that I have to save every time I see them )

About 40% Larry, 15% Bono, 5% Edge, 1% Adam and 39% Band... Is that 100?

I need !
