Come on, that's a good name for a portable version of PuTTY—it's funny AND it describes what it is. Well, if you know what PuTTY
is, it's funny. PuTTY is a free telnet/ssh client for Windows, and it's been my SSH utility of choice for years. It does what it should, and it does it simply and correctly. What more can you ask for?
The other day, Lifehacker named PortaPuTTY
its download of the day
and I was stoked because now I can just carry PuTTY around on my USB keychain drive so if I'm in a place without wireless (or without my computer!) but with a USB-enabled device, and a client has an emergency, I can just fire up the ol' PortaPuTTY
along with my Portable Firefox
and Portable Thunderbird
. Good times!
Also, who doesn't love an app from a site called Socialist Sushi
? I will definitely donate to his sushi fund.
