    Pretty Cool looking.
    
    I'd be a little concerned about trashing the connector or
    getting short circuit inducing lint into it (I actually do sometimes
    have steel wool in my pocket :-)
    
    As an alternative 64Mb PCMCIA flash cards are rather useful.
    
    Where the keychain would be useful is transferring data
    to desktop PCs that do not have PCMCIA slots.
    
    I use a 32Mb Compact Flash card to transfer presentations at GSRC
    workshops. 
    
    The same CF memory fits into the Nikon camera.
    
    Compact Flash cards are at
    http://www.microtechint.com/qs-compactflash.html
    Microtech 64Mb cards w/ an adapter are $149.
    Microtech 96Mb CFF96MB/A cards w/ an adapter are $209.
    
    Unfortunately, the Olympus uses a different format, but
    we could probably buy memory in that form factor
    (SmartMedia (SSFDC))
    
    SmartMedia cards are at
    http://www.microtechint.com/qs-smartmedia.html
    64Mb is the largest size, and they cost $139 + $39 for a PCMCIA card
    reader or $79 for a Floppy reader.
    
    One thing to be aware is that NT does not support USB, but
    will support PCMCIA cards.  Also, I'm not sure about the
    USB data transfer rate vs. the PCMCIA flash card.  I think
    the PCMCIA cards are faster, but I'm not sure.
    The PCMCIA cards also work with Mac laptops, the USB drives
    might also
    
    The keychains cost
    16Mb $70
    32Mb $129
    64Mb $199
    
    
    BTW - The full Pt II installer, Cygwin setup and the JDK
    are about 68 Mb, so we would need to get a larger size to
    transfer all the stuff necessary for the tutorial.
    
    So, if you are serious about wanting to do installs.
    go with the 96Mb card, which is compatible with what we have.
    
    If you want something cool, then go ahead and try the
    USB key fobs.

        We should get a couple of these to have at the miniconference (!).
        It would be very cool to run Ptolemy off them...
        
        Christopher, what do you think?  Since Mary isn't here, I could
        buy a couple using my credit card.
