Ever left something in your pocket and it's gone through the washing machine? Well I left a new usb flash card reader in my pocket with a 2gig micro sd card in it. It was one of those milestones in my life that crop up occasionally. It was found in the machine after the wash was finished. (front loader). I dried them both out close to the wood stove for ten minutes and let them cool off. I plugged the card into the reader and stuck it in the usb slot on the laptop. checked it out in windows explorer and Bingo! there it was with all info still installed. Amazing. Remind me one day to tell you about 'The Night Of The Great Baked Bean Disaster......' another milestone in my life.
