One woman's trash...

Getting caught up on my email, I just read this story forwarded to me by my brother-in-law. I can think of few stronger advertisements for backing up your work. This woman's purse is stolen and it has the one copy of her thesis (on a flash drive) in it. Definitely one of those "I feel your pain" reads for any of us who have struggled through a grad degree. The part where she was telling the detective he had to do a good job fingerprinting her minivan because they had to catch the guy and he's looking at her like "whatever lady" was the part that really got to me. Oh my god I'm so glad my dissertation is done.
