So now that I have a new HDD installed in my laptop, I am back in action. I have been busting my ass collecting whatever data I had backed up on my desktop back in Indo, updating my address book, and installing new software. And to make sure I do not find myself in a similar predicament anytime soon, I have invested in an external HDD in which I shall back up all my files.
This bad boy comes in its own cushioned travel case with a USB cord. With 40GB of disk space I can download all the movies and music I want and move it between computers. I do not know why I never got one of these earlier. I am usually on the back end of technology and it always blows me away when I land a new product that is going to simplify my existence. I know that external HDD drives are so old school now a days but I feel but I feel like I have just been brought up to speed.
And look at how small this sucker is! It can fit into my pocket as easily as an ipod.
So finally some normalcy is returning to my life. I am slipping back into my groove and returning to my pace once again. I am committed to staying in China until Chinese New Year after which I will treat myself to a 2 week vacation. In the meantime I am going to keep exploring Guangzhou and whatever other Chinese towns my work drags me to.
