Here's a new use for your USB that really makes sense - applications that run off the USB, without cluttering your hard drive. Just the thing if you use more than one computer, or use shared computers.
Some of the available apps:
OpenOffice (an MS Office clone)
GIMP - media viewer and manipulator
Firefox & Thunderbird
Since I spend time on several different computers, this seems a worthy use of the USB.
I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, and teacher (science). Oy, so many roles! I've been blogging for over 9 years, and I think that the addiction is unstoppable.
Previously, I blogged on the defunct site, Right We Are! with a co-blogger. When she left to do other things (what other things could there be to do!), I flailed around for a few months, then started Right As Usual. I've branched out, co-blogging on Outlaw Bloggers, writing about Retirement Issues on Over & Out! (now renamed At Last! Retiring for GOOD!), and generally making a pain of myself.
I dabble in US culture, news, and politics. I am a Catholic, and not one of those that says "I was raised Catholic", but never attends. Every Sunday (and Holy Days), you'll find me in the pew.
What makes me qualified to comment on culture, news, and politics? Just what qualifies us all in this country - I read, watch, and decide for myself.
Isn't America great?
