my backup to my hard drive, is not connected. I always hope it will work anyway. I do a little voodoo dance, put some feathers on my head and mutter some helpful curses: “May your teeth fall out if you don’t copy my data; may your Mother turn into a Dodo bird and become extinct; may your father have invested all his money with Bernie Madoff.” That kind of thing.
It doesn’t work. I have to plug it into one of the USB ports. I want to save those ports for when I want to plug something in. You know, my ipod (which I haven’t used since August) or my camera (I can download pictures, but then what?) or my new weather station.
First of all, it doesn’t plug into a computer. It would probably help it a lot, but no go. Second, I want to do something to my LaCrossetechnology weather station, but it’s more along the line of smashing-it-under-my-foot.
Stop right there. All will be well. my son will be here at Christmas and he will make it all better. Yes, he will.
