    On a strap attached to my trouser belt. Electrician's leatherman, led torch, pen and two 2GB usb sticks. Very seldom need anything else but the leatherman gets a lot of use, especially in the medical room

    I have a *horrible* habit of doing that !

    Usually involves work during the holidays where you can be all over site - eg working at one end of school, then called away because a delivery is here or an electrician has arrived - and then after that distraction going and doing something else... b*gger, where did I leave the screwdrivers?!

    Also, Remote Desktop Connection to my PC back in the office is one of the best things I've set up!!

    Just classroom door keys mainly - we have a small server room (broom cupboard) in the three main buildings with gear in so keep a limited toolbox in each!

    If its a major job then its back to the office to get the right tool for the job!

    When i am out and about i carry keys with a GMK on it to get everywhere and my new windows 8.1 tablet connected to the domain plus a couple of memory sticks, one attached to my keys and normally one attached to my ID badge.

    Then it does depend on what the job im doing is. Mostly i will carry a toolbox around with all sorts of tools in it. Including Patch cables, hammer, screwdrivers, punch down tool and Crimping tool, RJ45 ends. Plus lots of random tools. Its starting to get heavy now.

    On our site here these days, I carry,

    Mobile Phone
    8gb USB stick (lent a family friend the 16gb one I had and only just got it back)
    Multitool that my wife bought me for christmas

    If I have to get anything specific I usually go back to office/server room to get it and install it today, failing that I remove the base units back to our server room to work on if needed

    what gear do you carry around with you?

    And now I think I understand the name and avatar...

    Do you mean at work or generally? I have a large bag. It could take a while..

    Hmm.
    tons of stuff as I support a few schools self-employed. Had to buy a Toyota Avensis (the stealth taxi) to get it all in. 2 plastic bins of kit and tools + 2 bags of cables etc, toolbox and small rucksack with my lovely HP probook 4340s. Loads of cables, 6 way mains leads, external USB DVD drive, esata/USB3 SSD, PSU's, adapters of all denominations and really useful a non contact voltage detector and LED torch combined. At home I have (ebay specials) 3COM 48 port gigabit switches , NAS, old Intel server, good spec. desktop PC, UPS, fibre connectors and MAC's, AP's, in fact everything needed to get a school working again if disaster should strike.
    I probably have far too much kit, but then I wouldn't be a geek otherwise would I....?
