I'll have lulls when working on my book would not only be possible, it would be therapeutic, a real sanity-saver. But I'll also be tired, rushed and distracted. Add to that the fact that when I write everything drops away from me and I go so deep into my own head that the world almost ceases to exist for me, and you have a recipe for backing up the old file over the new one or some other destructive mistake.

I'm going to ask some stupid questions. Apologies.
rebecca wrote:First, what is a firewire? Is that a special cable to connect the computers? I've seen the term used numerous times, but never knew exactly what it meant.
I checked the specs, and both my computers will do firewire.
rebecca wrote:I have a little 100g drive that you can hold in your hand by Memorex. It plugs into the computer using two usb ports, instead of one. It's a couple of years old, but I used it as a backup for an old laptop, and then my teen-aged son took it (major punishment) and used it. In all that, it's never even burped, so I guess it's a sturdy little thing, capable of being lugged around in my briefcase. Is this anything like firewire? Could I use it instead of what you're talking about?

What is Mac HFS file system? Is that just where you re-format the drive, or is it something special?
