I am expe­ri­enc­ing Tech Lust. I can even jus­ti­fy pur­chas­ing a honkin’ big USB flash dri­ve for myself, when­ev­er the funds come available.

Sam’s dri­ve should han­dle all this stuff, so I’ll have to set­tle for vic­ar­i­ous sat­is­fac­tion for the moment.

The Ulti­mate USB Key talks about the apps the author nor­mal­ly keeps with him. Dri­ve sizes have got­ten big enough that they can do much more than car­ry­ing doc­u­ments around.

I already knew about (and use) Portable Fire­fox, but the author has expand­ed to ver­sions of Thun­der­bird, Sun­bird, and NVU. As I hate web­mail, the idea of being able to check my email from any­where in Thun­der­bird gives me a major happy.

Oh—and the same guy did Portable OpenOf­fice.
