My best tech move of 2006

In the closing months of 2006 my trusty flash drive died.  These things don’t last forever and I had backed up everything so the loss wasn’t huge.  Found a SanDisk 1GB drive for $15 – what  a deal.

That’s not the best part.  The best part was installing the portable versions of Firefox browser and the Thunderbird email app on the flash drive.  Now, no matter what computer I am using, I can use my email address,  with contacts and old email, as well as MY browser with MY bookmarks. 

There a number of applications designed to be run from  a flash drive.  Installing these little apps takes your flash drive from mere storage to a mini-computer (without the monitor, keyboard, mouse, CPU, operating system and the rest of the heavy stuff).

That’s my story.  What’s your’s?
