the container store

I'm starting to become afraid of losing.
That is, losing all the creations housed here on my lil' computer.
So I'm contemplating buying one of these:

SmartDisk ByteSize Portable USB Hard Drive (8GB)

Ultra-portable yet with enough capacity to back up videos, music and photos, the SmartDisk ByteSize hard drive offers a minimum of clutter and a maximum of convenience.

it costs about $40 or $50 (depending on the storage size)... so probably worth it. I don't need more space than 12GB, do I? I have mostly photos and projects such as InDesign and Illustrator files, as well as the occasional word doc., etc. Maybe a movie or two, as well, but nothing fancy. Oh and a bit of music.

I actually have an external hard drive, which I bought last year when my PC was dying. But soon after, I gave up on it all together and got this lovely MacBook. The clunky PC hard drive
(Maxtor, to be specific) doesn't work on the Mac. I can get stuff off of it, but can't put anything on it. Such a bummer. But that bad boy is huge, loud and needs to plug into an AC power source, which is a real pain in the butt.

I think I should think on it for a day or so. I have a 1GB flash drive in the mean time. Knock on wood.
