My husband is horrible about misplacing wires and plugs for our various electronic items. He’s been like this for as long as I’ve known him and well, it pretty much drives me nuts!
The other day I was looking at my Laptop computer and I realized that I only had 15 gig left on my hard drive. Considering how many photographs I take and the fact that I’m now starting to take videos on a regular basis (and that the videos are playing quite choppy on the laptop) I decided to find my 300 gig external hard drive and move some of my files over to the external drive.
So I went looking for the external hard drive. I hadn’t used it for a while. It was under the desktop computer, but my husband, for some reason, had unplugged the external hard drive from the electrical outlet and he had put the electrical cord and the special usb plug for the hard drive in a location that was no where near the computer. I had to wait until my husband came home from work and then we had to search the house and several drawers before we found the correct wires for the external hard drive.
Why on earth he has to completely remove wires or plugs from pretty much any of our gadgets that aren’t in use and move them to places that have nothing to do with whatever the gadget is meant for … well … I don’t understand.
I think the next time I go out shopping I’m going to get a label maker so I can label all the detachable wires so that if he removes the wires from something and hides them again I’ll be able to figure out what wires belong to what electronics. While I’m at it I might as well add address labels to my shopping list as I can use some of those too!
Anyway … now that I’ve got that external hard drive working I’ve slowly been moving files over from my laptop and hopefully my laptop will play videos better and work a little faster soon.
