Let us discuss about Flash Medias
-- Their usage
Does anyone knows if there is any SD card to Compact Flash adapter (like micro SD to SD).
If so I would like to use it with eee-pc.
It came with 2GB compact flash card
and as CF cards are costly (though the edge is they are very faster in speed) but SD cards are cheap.
The best flash card I have seen is an SD card that folds in half and can be plugged directly into a USB port. It would be great to not carry around an extra adapter everywhere I go.
Flash Medias is fasion,we should discuss
Yea, I actually have recently picked up a small USB media reader from ebay for about 5 bucks. Read all the major flash formats and acts like an upgradable jump drive. They are simple pieces of hardware and they usually work great (just like any other USB drive). With the cost of SD cards, it is about cheaper to get an adapter and a card instead of a Jump Drive.
Glad I could help.
Sub: Yes it not the fashion but the need of the day as well
You are right eznet.
I would like to add that I keep KeePassPortable, OpenOffice, (Pidgin (formerly GIAM)), kitty (better than putty), VLC media player etc. etc.
And its hard for me to be without these portable tools.
Anyway, I would like to know some used thinstall successful to make applications portable.
If yes, please mention which applications were made portable through it.
I think that making an application portable depends on what the application requires to operate. Some applications are all encompassing, or will only have a few Dlls that reside within its directory structure - then while you other apps that install files all over the computer and have a broad range of dependencies and so are harder to make portable. For an example of a non-portable app that was easy to make portable, I use TightVNC to control my desktop while I am on my work PC. The TightVNC I wanted to use was not 'portable'... luckily, the VNC was just an executable and a config file, so it was easy to make it portable- really i just put it on the drive and added a menu link in the portableApps menu.
What apps are you wanting portable?
