Your portable suite is great! I see that Portable Firefox will soon be available for U3. This enhancement is tremendously valuable to the average U3 user so that applications are easy to install and launch for those of us who are somewhat technologically challenged. Would it be difficult to make Thunderbird, Sunbird, and the other applications included in the portable suite (e.g. OpenOffice, etc.) also friendly to the U3 Launchpad?

Got a suggestion for an app that should be portable? Post it here.
portable CRM closely integrated with portable thunderbird, repeat - portable thunderbird, not just thunderbird.
i am badly in need of this, as i am constantly on the move, & need a good crm, that can take addressess of my contacts, maintain transactions, as & when they happen, & keep reminders & todo list. contact addresses must have configurable fields, in addition to the minimum what thunderbird provides. all thunderbird contacts should be saved as crm contacts by default, (or vice versa) so no duplicating the contacts entries.
i am willing to devote time to plan the features wish list, & do the beta testing, whenever required. anybody interested ?
I think that one that needs to really be considered is Spybot... I mean we need to keep friends safe.
Silentnight Micro Burner for CD/DVD/Audio/ISO is a small (1.16), self contained, CD/DVD burner that runs from USB flash or from CDR. I do not know if it writes any registry entries, but it doesn't seem to leave any files behind.
One of the problems that I have as a consultant is not having a full suite of tools when I am off for meetings. Normally I use a Palm T5 for most work. Sometimes, clients have problems that need more sophisticated tools. One of the best open source tools is R, an open source analogue of S. It is extremely powerful (See Modern Appllied Statistics with S - Venables and Ripley) and has the bleeding edge of stats.
I had originally requested a portable implementation from John. However, you can do it yourself, just copy the foler c:/program files/R over to your USB. When you load the USB, you need to navigate to the RGUI module in the BIN folder. Firing that up gives you a very powerful statistical system. It seems to work not badly on a USB key (about 100mb needed). I am still testing it in a USB environment. I have tried it on a "cold" machine on which R has never been installed and it seems to work well and leave no obvious leftovers on the main hard drive.
I have a nice little program launcher app I wrote for my own USB drive. Any chance of having it hosted here?
I can provide source code (in VB...).
As far as I can tell it requires XP to work, although it may also require an installation of office (I know, VB sucks...). If this is the case and enough people want it I'm sure I can get it to work on older versions of Windows.
The perfect companion to Portable Thunderbird - Portable YPops!
For those not familar, YPops is an open source gateway to yahoo mail - it basically acts as a localhost POP server, allowing you to download your yahoo mail email into thunderbird, or whatever other pop3 client you are using. Very handy.
