Good Idea
« on: February 10, 2010, 08:09:39 AM »
I saw this on another board, and it's a Great tip that I never thought of.  :icon_thumright:

For the safety of important documents,in case you lose them;  scan them and put the photos on a USB key. You can keep the key in separate place, so you won't lose it too.

 That way, they can be printed from ANY computer (even without Internet access).

If at first, you do not succeed; You Obviously did Not use a BIG enough Hammer!!!
If at first, you Do Succeed.. try not to look tooo Astonished!

I scan my documents and email them to my hotmail account - that way i have access from any computer with no risk of losing them.

I've always scanned them and emailed them, but the USB key is a better idea.  This way they can be printed from any computer whether there is internet connection or not.   :icon_thumright:
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

good idea - sticks are so innexpensive.  And while you are doing that a couple of pictures of each other, and your tickets.   And as one poster a while ago suggested a couple of pictures of your luggage.  Carry one stick in your carry-on
