So, my flash drive died last night.
Just stopped working.
Had a lot of files on that thing that weren't backed up.
Including my final project for my Masters degree.
Good thinking on my part not backing it up regularly.
Looks like I'm starting from scratch again--on several things.
Kind of a downer.
The "Mister Rogers" side of me says that the bright side of this mishap is that I can try to do a better job on my project this time around.
The "Mister Rogers" side of me is also betting that I'm one "neighbor" whose learned a valuable lesson about backing up portable memory.
Side note: that "Mister Rogers" side of me can be a real pain in the rear at times like this.
