Just the essentials.

If I only had a 128mb flash drive then these are the apps I would keep.

Portable Firefox
Portable T-Bird
Portable Miranda
Pstart
FastStone Screen Capture
Signupshield
Cybershredder
TrueCrypt
Portable FileZilla

Of course I have many more on my flash drive, but these would be the must keeps.

Life is about the journey not the destination!

Not only portable

Just everyday normal apps.

Everyday Applications

This is a list of applications, utilities and programming tools I use almost everyday:

Some of these I use everyday, others I just use once a week or so. Either way, enjoy the list and I hope you somehow find it useful.

Excuse me

These are just essential programs for everyday use nothing to do with portable apps.
Plus, since I've been here for 20 weeks and you've been here for what, 2 hours? I know what I'm talking about. You sir, are stupid.

Any regular use apps

and that's why it's in the Off-Topic Section. It's just cause most people here seem know a lot and could help me.
