ctrl+s

While in hour 4 of Skype meetings this morning, I managed to look down at my keyboard and see this.

Looks like a normal keyboard, right? 

Now, take a closer look.

That’s right, my S decal is almost completely gone…. hence the title of this post, ctrl+s.  As a grad student in the social sciences I am frequently writing papers, posting on discussion boards, having Skype text conversations, etc.  And with that comes multiple, multiple strokes of the good ol’ ctrl+s.  If you’re not saving your work, your dumb.  If you’re not backing up your work, you’re dumb.

Why yes, that is two external hard drives.  And yes, both of them get used for my backups every week.  Additionally, I have two flash drives and two DropBox accounts.

Some may call this paranoia, I call it INTELLIGENCE.  

Here’s your funny of the day 🙂
