removable disk stuff

Am running Trillian and Semagic off of Removable Disk (E:) right now.. ee, they run a little slower, but it could be handy to carry certain things around. In particular Trillian, because you don't have to worry about setting up a profile on other computers, or downloading the software, and all your logs stay with you.. hee.

Plus, I could bring these things to work (so long as they don't interfere with my actual work). They already have AIM at work, but not Yahoo or such, so this could potentially be helpful. A copy of the driver program, KeyNote (a nifty little tree-style notes system), IrfanView, CCleaner (a nice computer cleaning program), ClamWin for viruses, Bazooka Scanner for spyware, etc.. hee. Am just being silly right now.

Wanted to make one of these drives secure.. suppose will do that with the other one. Am not sure entirely what that will entail software wise, but hopefully it'll just ask for a password when plugged into any computer or some such, mya?

By the way, when compressed all the materials from the Deliria CD do fit on one of these sticks (just barely). Which makes it much more portable than simply being on a CD..  (^*^)

There's a couple of packages that do portable disk encryption, actually. I don't think any of them are free, however.

Be very careful when dealing with encryption packages, period. If you don't have any kind of key escrow (I'm talking personal key escrow, not the bullshit key escrow the NSA wants), then you'll be in big trouble if you screw up.

mm, ya. The disc that came with the disk (to install drivers) has a program that will privatize it. Not sure how it will work, it is made by GE. Have never had GE software before.. but they are, after all, the makers of the time machine, so who knows.. ee

There is also the PGP/GPG option, mya.
