The Whole World In Her Hand - Friday 7/18/2008
The one on the left holds just most of my typed up writing for the past year or more.
The one on the right holds all the documents I've created at my job for the past two years.
You never really know how cold a room can feel until you try to access your USB drives only to repeatedly receive the message "Drive unformatted. Do you want to format now?"
Noooooo. No, I don't.
These little guys are really wonderful. I don't absolutely trust my hard drives. I figure it's better to save to these (infinitely losable) little darlings. I do also have an external 250 gig hard drive that I save photos and personal documents to, but it doesn't really get updated as often as it should.
As it turns out, there's something wrong with the USB ports in my desk top computer. Thank goodness I was able to move the USB drive to my laptop and send my last report of the day. (Working from home, saving gas money, tra-la!)
I would much much rather have a problem that money can solve than lose all that data.
I'll be backing up to that external drive this weekend, you betcha.
P.S. When the heck did I get shar pei wrists?!
Is this some kind of cruel instant-karmic retaliation for making fun of The Hoffmeister yesterday?
I swear to you, it's the awkward angle, standing over a table with my hand lying flat. My wrists are not always this baggy!
