I’ve been wanting to get Mr T sitting more securely than he was on my bogus temporary bunch of granite countertop scraps. He needs to be up off my desk for ventilation and to make his monitor more comfortable for my neck.
Also Dearest got me an external hard drive big enough to keep all of Mr. T’s data backed up. It needed a home on my desk where it would be secure and easy to access.
Yesterday, I had an Ah Ha! moment and built this.
I cut out one end of the box and reinforced it with cardboard strips glued inside, then glued fabric to the outside to make it really sturdy and purdy. I really like how the colors coordinate. Anybody recognize the fabric? 🙂
I backed up ALL my files YAY! and when it was done, the external hd and its rolled-up cords tucked nicely together in the box where they are safe AND visible so I won’t forget to do regular updates to my backups.
I decided to call the external hard drive “Locke.” It’s a play on words … the unit is a Seagate. A lock in a canal is a seagate, get it? I added the -e to give a nod to John Locke whose writings influenced our Founding Fathers.
