Another cute flashdrive? Gimme!

     I’m addicted to cute flash drives.  There, I said it.  I have quite a collection of them and use them all the time.  I’ve backed up the back ups of my backed up back ups.

     Why?  Well, I lost an entire book once because I’d neglected to back up my files.  I swore then it’ll never happen to me again.

     I cracked up The Curmudgeon at Staples when he caught me drooling over the racks of novelty flash drives.  I saw a dozen or so more I’d add to my collection.  I’d kill for a bull terrier one.  LOL!

     You all have a good one!  And don’t forget to back up those files!  😀

Do you back up everything?


Product Details


     After losing several precious to me pictures and some book chapters a few years back when my computer crashed I’ve become rather anal retentive about saving things to CDs and memory drives.

     I have a 2.0G SanDisk that I’ve been using for a few years and it drives me crazy because it has some junk programs that came installed on it.  Thanks but no thanks I only wanted storage for my books.

     With it now back to school season, I found an on-sale-super-cheap 4.0G USB memory drive put out by Dane-Elec.  I’m in love with it.  It is all storage and no junk programs.  At the price I paid for it I’m going back to buy more, many more.

     I’ll use some strictly for pictures and keep others for my writing.  I might even back up my entire computer again although there are a few programs I won’t bother with since I have them on disk.  Heck, if get a couple of the 8G ones I can back up things to my heart’s content.
