Some consider time spent managing the actual media. DVD's are easily stored 
and labeled as to what they contain. USB devices in all their assorted shapes 
and sizes are anything but either. I only just bought my very first 32GB 
stick today ($18 Kingston @ Staples). I can count all the USB storage media I 
own on my fingers, while the skin on my fingers has more space and is better 
suited for labeling contents than the sticks. OTOH, my DVD collection numbers 
well in excess of 3,000, all easily identified as to what they contain, and 
systematically and neatly stored when not in use.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
