Out of the Blue

I was referring to the free space on a hard drive yesterday when it struck me that this turns the old optimist/pessimist thing of the glass being half-full/empty on its head. I usually fall into the half-full camp, so it struck me when I spoke of the drive being half-empty that this was optimistic in hard drive terms. I think I'm going to start saying hard drive instead of glass when I use that phrase.
