I needed to copy big fileset the other day and all my thumbdrives were MIA. I was about to swipe my camera’s SD photo card for this when I remembered I have a CD-DVD burner. I started looking for a blank DVD then I remembered how slow doing that was compared to a thumbdrive copy. It then occurred to me I haven’t burned a CD or DVD in 2-3 years. When gig+ sized thumbdrives became throwaway cheap I left it all behind. Burning a DVD feels like using a floppy drive these days.
I decided to wait until I could find a thumbdrive.
Sometimes the way things become utterly obsolete sneaks up on you.
