“And you may tell yourself
This is not my one-gig drive!”
Which is by way of saying that, after some weeks lurking at Woot, I actually snagged some wootage this week: an actual two-gig drive, with a real platter and everything, that plugs into a USB port. (Here’s the original sales pitch.) I suppose a flash drive might be a tad more reliable, and maybe a little faster, but this thing flat flies, and at eighteen bucks plus shipping, including a USB extension cable, it was hard to resist, especially since the alternative is to burn two or three CD-Rs every time I feel like backing up the files I’d most hate to lose. (I do have a flash drive here at the Shotgun Shack, but it’s smaller. Capacity, I mean.)
These sold out in ten hours or so; I suspect a few of them will be sprinkled through future Bags O’ Crap.
