A portable App that reminds you to remove your key

Hey

I was looking on digg and saw this cool app that reminds you when your about to log out of the computer to remove your usb key.

However it requires you to install some script to your logout and enable it and this is just not very feasible for me since I use a school computer and it would be a pain to do this. I would have to do all these steps everytime I go to a school computer(and I usually have to change computers every 2 hours so I would be doing this like 4 times a day).

So I think it would be a very cool if someone made an app that does this sort of thing.

Since I am sure everyone has forgotten it at one point and this app could be very useful especially for people who bring it to school since everyone has to logout.

I've only been here a few days but my wild guess is:

I don't have a portable app

I don't have a portable app menu(or at least not the one from this site).

I use the u3 menu one(I am looking into this portable app menu but not sure if I will use it yet).

If you don't like it, and you would like to use some PortableApps on your U3 menu, I would recommend SmithTech's Shortcut Creator 4U3.
