What to do with 62MB flash drive?

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I work at my college and this week they decided to give all student workers a "gift" for the end of the year. A 62MB (yes, that would indeed be megabyte) flash drive... Apparently they found them in a box back in a closet and thought it a cheap re-gifting.

So, needless to say, this is essentially useless. I'm looking for something to do with it, but alas google has turned up nothing that I've seen. So I now turn to my OCN brethren to come up with a use and/or end for this drive!

uhm. how about run chrome portable on it? i dont remember how big that thing is, but its on teh interwebs. its kinda nice having a little chrome drive to take around that has all of your extensions and bookmarks on it. i think there is also opera portable, and FF portable.

Already have a 16GB drive I use for everything lol.

I also thought about possibly putting DSL on it, but am curious to see if there are any more "creative" uses from around here. Besides, I already have a 4GB drive with Puppy Linux installed on it.

Toss it. Preferably at the person who though it would be a good "gift."

sledgehammer.
on second thought, keep it for nostalgia. someday, they will be a rare artifact.

seriously, give them to your students. they will laugh at it.
btw, my flash drive for school is 64megs too!

No you won't, you're not the one with the 62mb flash drive.

Op, you could use it as a security key, or a mobile encrypted password vault.
