I am both CHEAP and "OLD SCHOOL." I got a BUNCH of 3.5 diskettes (some people here are like, "What are THOSE?") at a Yard Sale last summer... brand new in the celophane... 250 for a buck!
Sure. My CD/DVD ROM works on Tuesdays, and the rest of the time it freezes up... but the A:/ Drive hasn't failed me yet! [Knocking on wood, vinyl and ANY surfaces I can find...] WHEN it DOES work, I can back my stuff up on CD, or on my USB drive (which fills up VERY quickly)...
Well, sure they are DD (Double Density), and I can only get SO much on the disks... but they are easy to manage! I want an Onager... grab the disk marked Onager, and there we go.
Ok... crawling back under my rock now...

Game Designer, BETA Tester, Model Designer, Figure Designer... HEY! It's what I do...
Jeeminy!!! How much does something like that cost?
With all the graphics work you do, I suppose you need a lot more than I do.
They're not too bad. About $99 for 2 TB, $79 for 1 TB and $50 for 500GB. So I just went for the 2 TB one. I shouldn't be spending that much, but some data you just don't want to lose and I'm sick of backing up with 15 DVDs. All those DVD start to add up after a while too.
Vermin King: Well, today is my first papercrafting workshop at one of the Senior Primary Care clinics. Wish me luck

squirmydad: I use winXP in Paralells on my Macbook to run Pepakura and Metasequoia. Otherwise I only touch Windows when a client can't figure out how to mirror their display to my projectors.

Vermin King: Is it the Windows updates or the Firefox updates that won't allow me to select where to download pdf's any more?
