Got a suggestion for an app that should be portable? Post it here.

Photoshop 7

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on December 23, 2005 - 12:48pm

I know it isn't open source... and maybe not even possible at all... But it would be awesome if there were a way to stick Photoshop 7 on a USB key drive, or whatever to use on any computer you want to use it on.

I hate having to connect to my computer remotely (using Remote Desktop Connection) to use Photoshop 7, and then have it be all laggy and crap.

But once again, I don't think there is a way to do this because of registry keys, etc. Just a suggestion though. Or rather, something to look into.

Rar & Video ?

Hey every one, i dont know if how hard it is to make a portable program that would support .rar compression. But it would be really usefull, my school computers are really gay, and dont let me install anything on them. Anything that i get thats a rar file, i can never open.

Also, maby a portable player that would support codecs like xvid and divx... To play rip movies, because again, you can never install anything on public computers...'

Thx alot

SQL Query Tool - Any Recommendations ?

Submitted by RossGoodman on December 22, 2005 - 9:22am


Can anyone recommend a:

open source
and preferably portable

SQL Query tool that can connect to ideally:

SQL Server

I understand that true portability will be limited as the middleware and configuration will have to be on the desktop, but it would be nice to just plug and play in the same way that I do with my other apps.


Portable Suite for U3

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?

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 ?
