"Remove your flash drive" reminder

Situation:
Basically, I use Portable Apps at school, home, and work from my USB flash drive. Occasionally, I will log off at one of those locations and FORGET my flash drive. I am afraid to put sensitive information on my drive such as e-mails, calender, etc... because I have already lost one flash drive this way.

Solution:
This guy on a blog wrote a little program that reminds you to remove your flash drive if you try to log off or shut down your computer without removing the flash drive/CD/whatever.

Rather than running a SECOND program when I plug in the drive, could a feature like this be incorporated into Portable Apps as an option since Portable Apps is running anyhow?

I'm not sure

I'm not actually a programmer, so, I don't really know what it would take to incorporate this.
