I will be completely out of touch for a while. Tomorrow I am going into the hospital for some preadmission testing and some other procedures, and then Tuesday will be having at least a partial gastrectomy (stomach removal) and quite likely a Whipple procedure (removal of duodenum and part of pancreas).

Probably not. Scott blogs about a cool new Iomega product that I really need (a 35 Meg cartridge drive with a USB connection). This is a product I need and want, and I have a history of dealing with Iomega that goes back to the original Bernoulli Box. I actually had a couple, including the then cool Dual Bernoulli, so that I could copy cartridges.
Unfortunately, my last dealing with Iomega ended in my getting the well known “click of death” problem, that in the end killed not one but 2 Zip drives, and it happened apparently days after the deadline Iomega decided on to no longer offer any assistance on the subject. I had loved the Zip drive, I had a stock of perhaps 30 blank disks sitting around as well as dozens of disks with stuff I really would have liked to get to, but absent buying a new drive and hoping that I had not somehow fouled one of them by placing it in the “Click of Death” drive before I noticed the problem, I sucked it up and gave up on Iomega.
So, I guess I will just continue backing up to CD/DVD for now...
