It's called a flash drive or thumb drive. Not much bigger than your thumb (hence the name), they function as a portable storage device for computers. Gone are the days of floppy disks and CDs. These things are awesome.
Note - they are only awesome when you know where they are.
Somewhere in southeast Michigan, in a yet-to-be determined location, is my flash drive. Oh no, not just any flash drive. MY flash drive........
....containing my mid-term exam. Yup. Gone.
The professor was nice enough to allow us a take-home mid-term exam. Due Friday at midnight, I have been working slowly but steadily on all the dimensions of this test. Natalie and I both agree that take-homes are a bit more challenging. Knowing this, I have been chipping away at it instead of one prolonged writing session.
With the device now AWOL, I get to start over.
Oh wait. I know what you're saying. "Paul, you're smart. Surely, you have it backed-up on your computer at home....'
Yeah, well. If you'll excuse me, I have some writing to do.....
