| | Anyone know of any cheap memory sticks in Dublin?
| | I bought two at Aldi (or was it Lidl) a few weeks ago,
| | but they keep ending up in the wash.
| well, Montpellier is not Dublin (perhaps to mutual
| advantage?), but a few weeks ago I spotted (and then
| immediately bought) a 1GiB stick (branded Intuix) for
| c.€50 — and so far it has worked fine [ ... ]
which has now been washed. ;-(
but survived! <<yea!>>
actually, I might have gotten lucky here: I spotted
it in the water as the wash was filling with hot(!)
soapy water and managed to retrieve it — completely
soaked with soap suds dripping off it — so it hadn't
been in the water for very long &tc.
I briefly washed it off under cool running water, and
then simply left it to drain and dry for c.4 _weeks_.
it seems to be completely unscathed.
