So, I got another new toy. I had some money coming to me for some contract work that I did, and I got a 750 GB external hard drive. I looked around, and that's the one I got. I wanted to make sure that it was compact and would work cross-platform. I probably could have done better, but I must say that I am more than pleased with this new Buffalo drive. It has been a dream.
My wife loves it, too, because she has now backed up all our family photos on it.
Hooray for toys!
