anyone subscribe to 'two of everything' ?
As I like a smooth regime, I tend to have backups if things were go wrong.I have two pedal bikes, because I can't face buses. I have two smart phones just in case. I backup digital stuff three times actually. I have two vapes just incase god forbid one breaks. But all the things I rely on and are imperative to my daily life, I have a back up just in case (whether it's obsolete but functional, it's a back up)
I always like to have at least one back-up pair of spectacles. And my workshop is full of back-up tools. Three computing devices, two kindles. Several pairs of walking shoes as a back-up for three bicycles, which are in turn a back-up for a single auto, The good news is that if you have have these back-ups, you will invariably find them useful at some critical juncture. I'm not entirely sure that this is some sort of distinguishing feature of those of us on the spectrum; but I would say it is common amongst those of us who have had to work in rather challenging circumstances, far from the back-up of our natural home.
I often get backups. And it's more than two.
5 mobile phones,
3 dvd players
9 packets of cereals
22 packets of flavored pasta.
Etc. I'm a nutter.
my backups are more "plans" i make rather than things I buy. I make a contingency plan B, C, D and so on. I get teased about it at work. it's a wonder I actually get out of the house in the morning.
Yes, I'm quite big on contingency plans myself. I need to be! That said, the one thing I have never really had was a contingency plan for my own career.
:) specticles yes too. I only have one PC and that would be a disaster- but would never consider cloud computing. varous cycling clothing for every season. I would meltdown if I couldn't operate normally
Darn it! spectacles
Yes. Contigency plans too. My holiday list can start sometimes a few months before I go away
I'm with you on that :) Two weeks worth of socks too. Just in case the washer packs up!
My film collection on HDD. Two media players for the HDDs just in case.
