Amazing that something so small could hold so much, right? But then I really got to thinking. We've been in a flood, after all, and we know that irreplaceable things can disappear in moments. And if this little device ever went under water, everything would be gone. Forever. That gives me panic attacks.
So I decided this week to back everything up a second time, on a different media. I bought a spindle of 50 blank DVD's (for $12.99) and laboriously transferred every folder, every document, and every movie over to the discs. It took 34 of them (each holds just over 4 gb). Because we learned from experience that DVD's can survive getting wet just fine.
