Two New Toys
Well, new accessories for my toys. Just got a 128MB Sony MicroVault
USB storage device for my various PCs, and a 64MB SD card for my camera. Wahoo! Yes, I come by my geek credentials honestly.
The MicroVault, which was about 70 bucks, is a little larger than my thumb, and I just plugged it into my USB port and it showed up as a removable drive (after Win2K automatically found the driver). I decided it would be an easy way to transfer files to/from my older PCs that don't have Ethernet cards, plus it's just wicked cool.
I'm actually most excited about the SD card, which was a mere 50 bucks. I will now be able take 8 times as many snaps as I can with my current card. An 8MB card came with the cam, and I generally get about 30 shots on it at a time, so this means upwards of 200 pics on my new one (depending on compression; actually, the card tells me it can store 350 right now, but that's not going to happen often
). Expect many more Sam pictures, and probably some of the other animals (so they don't get jealous).
