Techie’s holiday plan

Our techie’s holiday plan set in motion. We are overwhelmed in Information, tech gadget, cables and adapters Tsunami at home. I will leave Sulaiman to explain this infection and its side effects.

Here is a checklist of activities we at home have planned for the digital journey:

  • · Backup files, photos and movies in portable drive / DVD /CD as appropriate
  • · Pack charges, cables in zipper lock packs and label
  • · Clean format 2 desktop and 3 laptops
  • · Install all basic productivity, utility, anti-all and driver software
  • · Email / Deliver photos of events / friends as suitable and give them a courtesy call
  • · Prepare selected pictures and upload to Flickr – take time to browse contact’s streams and leave a comment
  • · Empty files from over a dozen CF / DS / Pro / Pro duo memory cards and number them sequentially
  • · Virus scan all external media and disinfect
  • · Label CD / DVD storage
  • · Make a database of over 800movies in DVDs and hard disks
  • · Revamp blog, refresh, categorise posts and link to more interesting blogs
  • · Charge camera batteries and phone spare batteries
  • · Clean camera equipment – lens, tripod
  • · Collect all chargeable batteries at home and charge them
  • · Make up your mind and discard myriads of cables, components, mouse, flash disk and keyboards that are erroneous
  • · If there is time to spare scan articles, photos, certificates and upload

As I type I am thinking – it is a plan for the weekend holidays or annual leave.....I wonder!

Lord give me the strength to pursue even the impossible.
