what's on your USB drive?
conference had sponsors, as I noted here
and a gajillion other people noted in their posts about BlogHer
THIS POST IS NOT ABOUT SPONSORSHIP ISSUES.
Rather, what did everyone put on their free Saturn-branded USB drives
? Sure, 64MB is nothing
, and many of us already have flash drives much bigger than that, but for the sake of levity regarding this issue let's just play along—just like my Mazda key and Saturn drive
. Everybody wins!
Happily co-existing on my free
- Portable Firefox
, for all my web-browsing needs.
- Portable AbiWord
, for all my word processing needs.
, for SSH and SFTP
, for when I need to jot things down but don't need a word processor.
Total space used: 42.7MB. Total space remaining: 19.6MB
If the drive were 128MB, I'd have added Portable Thunderbird
and Portable GIMP
. If I were a designer rather than a programmer or writer, I'd have installed Portable GIMP instead of Portable AbiWord on this wee drive. I can make do without Portable Thunderbird because I can access all of my various mail accounts via a web interface.
You can find portable apps at PortableApps.com
, The Portable Freeware Collection
, and plenty of other Google-searchable places. Technorati tags: blogher06, blogher
