Photo Story 3 - The 11th Day of Christmas

Windows Live SkyDrive - Second day of Christmas
Continuing my run of 12 Days of Christmas, here's my gift for today. 1GB of free online storage This year, USB memory sticks have been a recurring theme - I've given them away at events, I've distributed files on them, and in talking with students, it seems that it's become the standard way to transfer...
