Figured I'd give this forum a shot before signing up at some tech-related discussion board.
I have some data- mostly text documents, a few pictures, about an album's worth of music, and a couple of medical records and legal/ID-related documents- that are important and/or irreplaceable to me. I've been storing them on a flash drive since I have a shared computer (roommate, no cash for one of my own). However, I've been forced to leave it behind when going out in anything to do with rain, water etc for fear of losing the data.
So lately I've been looking for waterproof, rugged and fairly small flash drives to store the stuff on. Even a 64MB or 128MB drive would be enough for what I would store on it, but it needs to be waterproof against rain/inclement weather, and also against submersion to probably 10ft and/or rugged enough to withstand breakage if I accidentally lay on it (reason being, it would be clipped next to the tag I wear around my neck, and I sometimes forget to take it off).
Anyway, I found this: http://www.ecost.com/prod/Storage/Fl...avid=155441524
Which is about the right size and price, and though the data capacity is pretty low it looks like it's made well. If anyone could help out on finding this or something like it at a less obscure source (ie Ebay, Amazon, or an electronics store such as Fry's), free e-cookies.
