I try to backup my laptop to a big capacity thumbdrive every morning when I power up the machine.

It’s easy to forget, though, so today’s invention is something I’ve actually made: a clip which holds the power cable in one end and the thumbdrive in the other.

This makes it difficult to connect the power without also inserting the memory stick in the adjacent slot.

A more advanced version would allow the clip to deal with power and USB connections at varying distances apart and might even include a way to attach to a security cable…which is usually a nuisance to lock and therefore easy to overlook.
