Inscribe your e-mail address on the back of your iPod so that if you, say, accidentally drop it when you get out of the car, the person who finds it might be kind enough to return it to you.
I’m totally iPod-less, and I feel utterly naked without it. And my home PC died. Again. Luckily, I only had my system and programs on the C drive that went. On the bright side…gosh, I can’t think of one. I’m too broke to replace either of them.
OK, on the bright side, now my kids can’t fight over who gets to play on the computer.
