One day I was cleaning my laptop and applying thermal grease, I got carried away and started cleaning the fan forcefully, and before I know it, I broke several blades! It's a long story that you can find on this link
, which taught me an important lesson:
Having a phone with USB OTG can be useful, connect it to a full sized keyboard and you have yourself a typing interface combining the easy controls of the keyboard, and the battery life of the phone, it's alien and a makeshift, but it gets the job done in a hurry, I'll post about my requirements for a phone short enough.
Netbooks for the win
You can always have a light weight cheap Netbook
to do some typing on the go, which won't replace your desktop setting, but is great for typing away in a coffee shop (if you have 10 hour power outage
a day, you will frequent a coffee shop to
work!), I got one myself and blogged about it so feel free to check it out from here
These are just ideas I suggested, you know your flow and what works best for you, and try to make it work.
What is your idea of a backup plan, does it involve another computer? Or are you the laptop hating kind?
