And our second pic of the day...


Is this. My USB drive. I've had it ages (it was a freebie Tiscali thing from last year's Reading Festival) and it always been useful. Just HOW useful has been revealed to me this morning. This is my USB drive shortly AFTER its visit to the Launderette.
It endured 30 minutes on a hot wash, a 1400rpm spin for about 5 minutes, then went into the dryer for 45 minutes at maximum heat.
And as I type this, it's plugged into my laptop, and i'm playing the mp3 files that were stored on it. Amazing!

I almost put my iPod Nano on a hot wash a few months back. Freaked out big-stylee, then managed to rescue it at the last moment!

I just know that one day I'll forget, and probably put the car keys in for good measure too...

I've put my oyster card through, which predictably came out unscathed, but sadly the little holder also had a ton of business cards I'd just collected from a conference. Most of them had turned to mush, but the ones from Moo.com faired the best, remaining readable and almost in tact.

I need some business cards...but first, I've got to get the business sorted! :)
