jumpin jack flash

on saturday night, my little flash drive was in the right place at the right time to help solve a technical glitch at a play at my congregation. as j.s. plugged it into the overhead projector computer, i thought "gee, i should really encrypt that thing. if he wanted to, he could display my financial info or play unfinished songs to the whole audience!" he didn't, of course.

the next morning, the same thumb drive got run over by a car. in the snow. i had somehow dropped it in the street, and i consider it nothing short of a miracle that i was able to find it. the miracle continued when, after i cleared off the salt and grime and bent it back into shape, it actually started working again.

but i'm investing in a new drive with strong encryption.
