Hi Bruce, and thank you..

That has been my method up until now.  After my computer froze during a 
powerpoint lecture at a recent workshop, I realized I would have been 
sunk had I not had a backup flash drive on me. I borrowed a PC and kept 
going.  Plus, had it been in KeyNote, I'm not sure it would have worked 
on a PC.

  I would like to be able to have the ability to store the lectures in 
the cloud, as another means of backup.  Dropbox is no longer supporting 
the OS system on my laptop, so I'm in the process of upgrading the OS on 
THAT. (what a pain).

Cheers!
Linda
