Hi,
Just thought I would post this as I have found this piece of hardware a real time saver in doing my job.
I purchased a memory stick. If you do not know what this is it is a small (3 inches long, 3/4 inches wide with a
USB plug in it). These can be purchased with 128meg, 256 meg, up to 1 gig of memory space. You just plug them
into a USB port and they self map and you got a nice way to copy out your development work and bring it home
and copy the files into your home computer.
This elimintates the need to burn a CD and bring large project home.... I also use it to install application at
workstations. I can copy my exe and runtime files and setup onto the stick, plug it in and run the setup.exe right
off the stick.
I got me a 256Meg stick... lots of room to transport that application you are working on. You can get these things
up to 1gig currently. The stick I purchased was $59.95 CDN for 256 meg. on special.
Got to update the virus dat, or service pack, or critical updates to those servers that are in your DMZ... with no
access to the internet? Copy the files to the memory flash stick, plug it into the servers USB port and run the install
right off the flash card.

On the flip side this technology opens up security risks on your network.... so with GPO's disable external devices
on your workstations.
