Was it only 2 1/4 years ago that I started to write The Next Novel?

It seems much, much longer, but I just discovered a video I took as I was starting out. At the risk of embarrassing myself (messy hair, no makeup, double chins!), I’m posting it here: 

Update: I never used the file system and the label-maker no longer works. (Sigh.) The novel, however, is crawling forward, way behind deadline however.

What do you think? Do you like this nuts & bolts stuff? What system(s) do you use?
