My Tiny Mind
I spoke of the wonderment of seeing my first pocket calculator the other day. Maybe it's just that small things amuse small minds, but I am quite taken by the small wonder that I'm holding in my hand in the above picture. If you can't quite guess, it's a 120 gig external hard drive for the laptop that I port over to Nikki Dee's everyday.
My laptop is three years old and has a smallish hard drive. All of my photos plus all of my tunes on iTunes (for my iPod) take up way too much space for the computer's drive. While I already keep all sorts of files on another external drive, that one is too cumbersome to carry about daily, so when I saw this little beauty on sale, I took the plunge.
It doesn't need a power supply, and I can install programs on it and plug it into other computers if need be. While it's mainly for storage, it's nice to have options. Needless to say, I really like it.
As I said, small things amuse small minds. Which means that my brain must be extraordinarily tiny.
