Okay, cleary I've been spending way too much money on new technology over the last few weeks, but it's been fun nonetheless.
During the digital recorder debacle last weekend, I was walking through Best Buy, depressed that they didn't have the recorder I wanted, and stumbled upon a rack full of portable hard drives on sale. Granted, I don't know much about these things other than that they're used for storage. Anyway, I bought one that was 80G for $79.99. Is that a good deal? I really don't know.
As I'm writing this post, I'm installing it onto my desktop. Since my computer is getting kind of old (I've had it almost six years) I decided it might be a good time to backup all the files on it (hence why I spent the $80). Although I haven't gotten it fully up and running, I am optomistic that this will help me save all my digital pictures, documents and such in a safe manner, without risk of losing them.
