Not a cartoon

Just some travel computing information from this (unblocked) web site. However, the links should be useful to you for downloading from home:

The list of tools lets you work on PCs that you don’t have admin privilege to work on like those in hotel lobbies, or business centers especially when traveling. 😉

You CANNOT do this on your work PC. The PC won’t let you run execute-able files from USB sticks … why would you want to do anything useful with your work PC except read the news or email anyway?

There is even a document how to convert non-portable apps to portable apps:

Hope this helps
