What do you keep on your memory stick?

One word - Portableapps.com . If you say it fast it is one word. Trust Me.

Don't get me wrong for some serious fixing - data recovery action I get down with Knoppix. It always seems to get me out of a jam. I keep it on a CD in my bag for emergencies but on my Memory stick I keep the Portable Apps Suite all loaded up. It's got everything for everything.

All the programs don't access the loacal machines registry. Which means no browsing history on the machine and no administrator access to run them. Light weight everything from FTP clients to A FULL Office Suite (oppen Office), IM programs, Anti-Virus. All the data is stored to the memory stick. It has a slick interface and its real easy to use. You want it they got it. I have been using it for a few weeks now and it really is a great resource.
Just grab the free download run the executable and let it have its way with your memory stick. Mine took its sweet ass time. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 minutes

From Thier Website:

What is a portable app?

  • Portable - carried or moved with ease
  • App - a computer program like a web browser or word processor

A portable app is a computer program that you can carry around with you on a portable device and use on any Windows computer. When your USB flash drive, portable hard drive, iPod or other portable device is plugged in, you have access to your software and personal data just as you would on your own PC. And when you unplug the device, none of your personal data is left behind.

No Special Hardware - Use any USB flash drive, portable hard drive, iPod/MP3 player, etc
No Additional Software - Just download the portable app, extract it and go

No Kidding - It's that easy
