After recent laptop adventures, I have been prompted to be better at the whole ‘backups’ thing. The thing is my photography habit is literally eating disk space. I am down to my last slither of free space on the ‘puter, and my backup drive is similarly full. With this in mind I have ordered a couple of new toys, and today, on next day delivery, they have arrived.

I now have a new, second, Maxtor external hard drive, a whopping 500 GBs in size, and also a rather funky Maxtor portable drive of 160GB on which I am going to keep all my photos (instead of on the ‘puter). Of course, naturally enough, both geeky items are silver… *grins*
