  • GTD tools for USB flash drive?

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know of any basic GTD tool (calendar, todo-list WITH CATEGORIES, etc.) that can run off of a USB flash drive without messing with the system's registry, hard drive etc?

    For example, Palm Desktop is inappropriate because it makes extensive changes to the hard drive and the registry. Mozilla Sunbird, while it can run off of a USB drive (see http://johnhaller.com/jh/mozilla/portable_sunbird/ ), unfortunately does not have categorized todos.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks!
    -John

    think Java

    I don't know of any off-hand, but the easiest way to implement something like this would be to find a Java applet which can do what you want. If it works off a webserver, you should be able to run it from within a local HTML document by way of the web browser of your choice.

    As an added bonus you'd be able to run it on just about ANY platform for which a Java Runtime Environment exists.

    Anyone know of such a Java applet?

        Some products to test.

        I haven't tried them up to now but maybe the following products are worth considering:

          Look at this thread, Mocephus seems to be using a wiki on his USB drive.
