    Memory Stick Essential Software

    Just got myself a shiny 16Gb memory stick for work and was wondering what you all consider to be essential software/utilities to have on it for IT Support.

    Thanks in advance.

    We have found AngryIPScanner Angry IP Scanner : Download - IP and Port Scanner Tool for Analyzing Networks very useful over the years, no install, just an .exe that runs from anywhere. Its an IP address and port scanner thats very good for finding whats on your network.

    I also use Irfanview http://www.irfanview.com/ a lot - its a batch image converter/viewer, and again does not require an install. Very handy when someone has some wierd format image they must have in a powerpoint NOW !

    Gotta love Portable Apps. I've got XAMPP and Eclipse (both portable) on mine, allowing me to code wherever I am. Wonder if they do a portable Visual C# Express?
