I have always hated the fact that dryers take about 60-90 minutes to dry clothes, and washers take about 35 minutes to wash. When doing a whole series of loads, you are a slave to the dryer. I wish there was some sort of feeding tube you could wash clothes, and they'd stay in a holding tank until the dryer was ready for the next load. Yeah, yeah, they have "all-in-ones" but they all have low capacity, are too expensive, and I hear they don't work so well.
If you schedule a backup during a time change... all hell breaks lose. Gigabytes and Gigabytes of raw, tortuous hell.
