hah. Last year, I got my wife a USB backup drive, and set it up for her 
laptop.  showed her how to plug it in and start the backup program while 
she was doing other stuff (this is a Windows laptop).

few months later, I ask hows the backup going?   "oh, its fine, see, its 
right there->" (points to the drive sitting on her work table 
unplugged).  k, when did you last back it up?  "Oh, I thought you backed 
it up for me?".    now, see, my wife is a tech writer, she's not a 
computer novice, she's been using them professionally for 30+ years, up 
to and including occasional unix shell usage.   sigh.
