This is why...

...so many geeks find it so hard to throw things away.

Today I had a call to dig out my very old Iomega parallel-port ZiP drive to retrieve a manuscript from the author's March 2002 backup disk.


PS: Something I have always liked about the old ZiP drives -- when you hit eject, they EJECT. No screwing around, just BAM. And with a satisfying *THUNK* that kicks the disk more than halfway out of the drive. Nice.

Note to self: It's not really backed up if you can't get to it.
