My Digital Life Anywhere Without the Laptop

My Flash DiskAbout a year ago I was surfing the world wide web when I came upon this website that offers an amazing piece of software collection that redefined my computing experience-- Portable Applications .
Portable Applications let you carry your favorite application programs and your personal settings in your USB. You can then plug your USB in any computer with Windows platform and run them from there. Best of all most of these programs are free!

Now that I don't have a laptop, being able to carry my files from my home pc from my work computer (I used to be a center manager for a IT Training School) and having all my tools and utilities in my person has been a time saver!
Here is a list of portable apps that I have on my 2GB USB Flash Disk:
