Yo D'Flo, about that courting disaster situations...couple of quick thoughts:
1) If you have a portable hard drive, it is work the less than ten bucks to buy a case. Why you ask? Well, I had this beautiful little Western Digital hard drive, and everything was great. Small, bus powered, and had all my movies and pictures...until the day that it fell. Not that far, just from my hand to the floor, like 36 inches. But that was enough, and it now sits in the freezer, hoping to one day work again.
So, back to the store I went, sob story in hand. They set me up with the Transcend 320 Portable Hard Drive, which has a Military Drop Rating. Not sure what that is, but I think it is a Klutz Like Me Rating. Then, I threw it is a case, and it has survived the last 2 drops successfully!!
Also, I think it is important to mention that will a little searching, there are some serious online storage sites, and some are free, like Microsoft SkyDrive, DropBox, and others. While they are up in the cloud, for backup they can help.
I guess it is time for me to learn this Time Machine function!
All great points, Shmully. You have a Mac and you're not using Time Machine? GET ON IT, MAN.
