# File therapy As our motto goes, 'the bigger the file, the bigger the problem' Her spreadsheets occupy too much space. She is downloading them from her email address. She receives an Xray of the European document she has provided. It looks very chaotic. Lidia identifies the problematic area, she circles it on the page. She says she never looks at her file in such a way. We have spotted two problems. Martino opens the European document and modifies it. IT is not a problem to do so, because the European document has been blessed by the European commission. It is a public document. Martino shows the part that is human readable. Donatella now knows how the machine sees her document. She is inquisitive because she wants to communicate better with her machine. Donatella is correcting/corrupting the file. The new file is saved. Donatella feels better. Lidia is amused by the possibility of signification. Signification was an autocorrect from sonification. It sounds calming. The professional therapeutic advice is to use the file when going to sleep. Lonneke picks up a bit of tape from Donatella’s sweater. Martino asks if anyone wants something to drink. Lidia is professionally musing “this was working yesterday…”. She is sent for further interventions to the Process Invocation service.
The observer overhears Donatella from the other side of the room. She sounds satisfied with our service.
# Process invocation After a File Therapy, Donatella approached PI. Asking why she was sent to us for treatment, she explained that her wonderings about file weren't complete without a proper look at the reality of 'file processes'. PI explained Donatella that a file is never really 'still', that there are processes running all along even when we think that we are not 'doing' something with it. PI showed a practical example of this by running 'ps aux | grep process', using mousepad as a process example. After having retreived the process number, we runned 'strace', to observe at the file's workings. Donatella was nicely surprised to notice that, even when the file seemed empty and 'unused', a great deal of processes where taking place before her eyes, on the terminal window (for example just by running the cursor on the empty mousepad window).
