I have a widget thing for my computer now – it’s a Billionton USB Portable Drive – about the size of my little finger it’s purple and transparent and winks at me with a little green light and it holds 64MB of data. I could have bought a bigger (disk dive) one, but it’s only to replace the humble floppy so it’s plenty big enough!

So now I will be able to fire up my novel at work (during lunch naturally!!) and tweak bits here and there, and plug it back home too. It will also enable me to take my floppy drive out, put the additional harddrive in it’s place, and reinstall the cd-rom drive since my cd-r appears to be too high spec to play many of music cds…
