can't say enough good things about thumb drives!

Published:

was working on Pick4 LRS excel file when we had a quick power loss... tried to re-open the file and it was corrupt :-(

thumb drive saves the day! only lost about 30 min. of work which was easy to re-do. My files are all massive for LRS/LoopRS, and they don't even put a dent in the storage space.

I gave my old one to my kid for school, so I had to use some of that $500 to trat myself to a new one (Sony microvault 4GB) normally $90 but staples had it on sale for $49. ALREADY saved the day...

If i can pull in another win on P3 I have my eye on this cool little handheld PalmTX that works with excel files using DataVIZ... hmm

I couldn't agree more! USB thumb drives are so completely awesome -- and essential -- these days. They make them so small and thin that you can slip 2GB into your wallet -- smaller than a half-dollar and just as thin.

If you travel with your thumb drive, don't forget to encrypt the contents, because they are easy to lose or have lifted. Here's an article on security of thumb drives: http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1895,2114688,00.asp

I had lost some work recently and decided to hook up the battery backup that Santa Claus put under the tree.
