Road warriors unite; Floppy Office will set you free


When you head off on the road, how much "stuff" do you have to bring along? Computers, cables, power bricks, cases–the list goes on and on. In addition, if you really want to get anything done, you need to bring your productivity software with you. Word processor, spreadsheet, email program, and all the rest. By the time you're all packed up, you're seriously wondering why you even bothered in the first place.

While we can't help you with the hardware in your bag of tricks, we do have a suggestion for the software cohort that travels with you.

Floppy Office is a "suite"–more like a collection–of small-footprint productivity apps whose main claim to fame is that they will fit easily on a USB thumb drive, or maybe even on the eponymous floppy disk. These programs boast no installer and are sufficiently self contained that you really can stick them in your pocket and take them along with you everywhere.

Floppy Office includes an Excel-compatible spreadsheet, an almost-a-word-processor .rtf file editor, text editor, compression tool, tiny ftp- and email client and a whole lot more. Choose the apps you want, configure them for the way you work, stick them on your USB drive, and you're good to go. Of course, you may want to use these tools on your desktop machine instead
