I purchashed a PNY 256MB USB Flash Drive. Partially to get a gadget hit but also to have something convenient to shuttle files in between home and work. There are a number of files on my work pc that I need to bring home. Other time, I need to work on a file at home and emailing it myself, downloading it over dialup is a big pain. So that’s how I justified the purchase to myself and bank account.
I’ve started putting some software installers on it too, right now its the Mozilla projects Thunderbird and Firebird applications. I figure if I’m ever at a PC lacking said software, it’ll be a breeze to fix it up. I’ll also be perusing Jason’s The Big List O’ Quality Software for other gems.
