Depending on the popularity of this item, we may make it generally available for purchase, however we are more likely to recommend that you buy your coal from an existing coal retailer. It will work just as well as ours, really (though not as fancily packed for portable use).
PortableApps.com Installer / PortableApps.com Format
Lump of Coal (Portable) is packaged in a PortableApps.com Installer (external format) so it will automatically detect an existing PortableApps.com installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by automatically igniting when put into an already-lit fire, preserving the flame. And it's in PortableApps.com Format (external accessories variant), so it automatically works with most of the PortableApps.com Suite (in the current release, backup support is missing; once you burn it it's gone).
* While stocks last. Initial stock level is approximately zero lumps of coal. Sorry.
