    21st Century Agony of Defeat

    I'm starting the week with a colossal failure: I dropped a USB drive in the toilet.

    The feeling I had when I stood there looking at it at the bottom of the bowl would easily equal the ABC Wide World of Sports agony of defeat image of the ski jumper. Well, minus the life-threatening injuries. But that dude didn't have to stick his hand in the commode to snatch a USB drive out of the water either.

    At least it was "pre-elimination."

    I washed my hands three times and rinsed the drive with water, then wiped it down twice with rubbing alcohol. Now I wait until I am sure that it's dry before I check to see if it's functional. If so, I'll transfer all the data to a new drive.

    UGH.

    Thatís crappy.

    Hopefully it will work long enough to get the data off of the drive.

    I do have some privacy concerns with savings files to Google drive or other cloud storage option, but at least with Google drive, I'll never have to fish that important file out of the commode.

    ETA: if you're dropping your USB into the toilet, you're probably taking the phrase "doing your business" in the bathroom a bit too literally.
    Well the sheriff couldn't catch me now, but his little girl? Sure wish she would.

    For a bit of good news: I inadvertently ran a USB drive through the washer and dryer, and it worked find after its adventure. (By "inadvertently," I mean I was too dumb to check my pants pockets when I washed that load. )

    But, but, but... I echo the question: WHAT were you doing in the WC with a USB in your hand? Inquiring minds want to know!

    What comes after your first "infraction"? Double Secret Probation perhaps???

    My son has put one thorough our washing machine in his pocket. My frustration faded when I put a mouse dongle through three days later
