Storing references and references with the minimal content
I am just starting with the Zettlekasten, don't even have a dozen zettels yet. Checked online what I could easily find including awesome https://zettelkasten.de/introduction/ by @sfast. I understand that Zettlekasten is for my own thoughts, zettels are better to be about the knowledge and information shall be stored elsewhere, but could I ask about what people with lots of experience do especially with things on the border of information and knowledge?
For example, this week I was looking at my photo-video archive, figured that I want to recompress some long videos. I do it approximately once a year and each year I pretty much google out the proper ffmpeg tool command line, figure procedure for moving files out of Photos app library, converting, assigning same date as the original file and putting it back to library.
- Is it a piece of knowledge (and thus command line + possibly a procedure description) to be kept in a separate reference database (such as DevonThink) and that's it?
- Or shall it be a piece of knowledge + a zettel on why/when I need it (as in "here's what I do when running out of disk space, here's a link to procedure)?
- Or would procedure deserve a zettel as it is sort of my idea on how to deal with the particular situation (and command line maybe to be a part of it right away)?
- Or shall that be kept out of Zettelkasten (in the reference database?) at all as something very unlikely to be related to any possible focused work of mine ever?
