Isn't it a good idea to also put pics on a micro card or flash drive? I feel more secure with that.

I have over 85gb of music, 45gb of music, 45gb of home video. Flash drives are not gonna be much use to me.

The main thing is to have multiple copies so that if something happens to one, you have a backup. Flash drive, external drive, online, wherever. You use whatever fits your need.

I take extra precautions.
If my computer hard drive dies, I go to my external drive backup. But if my house burns down, its all gone, so I have several online storage accounts(drop box, sky drive, google drive) and have all the important stuff backed up in the cloud too.

2 gigs is a joke. Some of these companies prey on folks ... they throw in a fast processor so people think they are getting a beast of a machine, but then completely ruin it by throwing in only 2 GB of RAM. RAM is so cheap ... there is really no need to go that low and if folks knew the consequences they'd spring for the extra RAM.
Yeah 2 gigs IS a joke. I insist on 8. Apparently she's taking it back tomorrow and getting something better.

I'm calling it Obamacare. Obama is proud of it and WANTS his name attached to it. And when it fails, or bankrupts the country, whichever comes first, and it WILL, Obama will have his name attached to it forever.
Yup still a clueless freaking idiot.

America has the best healthcare system in the WORLD! Why do you think Mexicans flock here? Why do you think Canadians flock here? Why do you think most doctors here are foreigners? All Obamacare is gonna do is DECREASE healthcare for Americans.
Time will tell. The negative effects will take a while to show. We'll see who's right, but I wouldn't break out the champagne just yet.
You're stupid.

Toni Preckwinkle is the President of the Cook County Board, as staunch a Democrat as you will find. She is a no nonsense tough cookie who had been a school principal. I had the opportunity to hear her speak and respond to a business oriented audience. She turned the word Obamacare from a pejorative to praise.

Are you still grouching about the income tax? The New Deal? The Voting Rights Act?

Pellen,
I'm so mad I could spit nails.
They've got until sundown tomorrow to iron out their differences. That is when my patience will end. Sundown tomorrow.....
I'd be happy to take them all for a ride.

Seriously though, the United States needs some massive public works projects to help get back up on its feet again.
The US is lagging desperately behind in development of high speed rail.
I sometimes watch through binoculars the airlines that approach O'Hare Field, you know, from my yard.
A lot of those are American Eagles, which are short hops from smaller nearby cities.
I'm just sayin', this can't go on forever and there needs to be viable alternatives to air travel.
The sooner, the better.

You know, I'm no financial manipulator, but October is a notoriously bad month for the stock market, which is all on paper, artificially inflated and can easily all come tumbling down.
I didn't put America in the mess it is in.
I was too busy working every day.

Figured it wouldn't be long before some liberal blamed the implementation of Obamacare on this incident. Thanks for filling the part!
And no one was killed.

Yesterday was the 100 year anniversary of Pres Wilson signing the statute enacting the Federal Income Tax. We still have the sovereign citizen movement.

Check back in 100 years. Someone will still be grouching about Obamacare.
