    Definitely useful. I'm not going to get one though, until I get my pc down to Cambridge.

    Ogre [am I right on the spelling?] ogrise oneself means turn oneself into an ogre.

    good, emailing things is what ive always done before (and i now have gmail! even better) but i heard everyone going on about how they were uber-useful for uni

    camford, i still have no idea what you are on about. why do you want to turn yourself into an ogre?

    amazon have a 128mb one for £10 http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...967639-0706207 and the 256mb one is £16 http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...967639-0706207

    i think i'll stick with emailing myself stuff for the time being though.

    Emailing is easier,I expect. I have had USB devices before and I always break the USB thingy by mistake. If they're expensive, just email. If not, try one if you so desire but I have NEVER seen anyone doing that. Even supervisors just email themselves. hermes webmail gives you tons of spance anyway.

    Yes, you are told correct. Due to the excessive dose of Shrek. *Vicent from Pulp Fiction: I got this chick, she's ODing on me.* You get the idea?

    hahaha, yes, it's really funny. I think they restricted looking at photos or something to people on the cam domain though, which they didn't do before.

    How could break USB Thingy? I can't break it even if I tried to. Wow! USB is more convenient than e-mail attachements. Consider the following 2 separate procedures.

    1, Not using usb drive
    1. save files into correct formats, tidy up say into a .zip file
    2. sign into one of your mail inbox
    3. compose, attach and send
    4. leave room and go to computers somewhere else
    5. log onto the system
    6. sign into the other e-mail inbox of yours
    7. read the message download the attachment save it to appropriate location.
    8. in case the computer don't have any decompression software, you have to repeat all previous steps
    9. if all goes well, find files open and read

    2, with usb drive
    1. save files to usb drive. No need to tidy up.
    2. uplug the drive, turn off computer and leave
    3. find some other computer at some other place in the university
    4. log onto the system
    5. plug in the usb drive.
    6. open files and read so long as the formats are compatible. No need for compression software as the files are compressed.


    So... Any comments?

    yes I break them, it's my magic way with comptuers. I only work with word documents (as do my supervisors) so it's copy into word, save and attach with hermes. When you get back to your room later and remember you just open the email and get the document. I can't be arsed with a stupid pen thing.
