Running Skype from a USB stick (rather than installing it) can be very useful, because this "portable" version allows you to run Skype on any computer. If you are away from your home or office PC, you can plug your USB stick with portable Skype into any computer (internet cafe, office, friends, etc.) without needing to install Skype and use Skype as normal. Being portable, Skype runs independently without requiring or leaving any information on the host PC.
1. Make a folder named "Skype" and create a "Data" subdirectory
2. Copy the file "skype.exe" into the "Skype" directory (download the latest version for free)
3. In the "Data" subdirectory, create a text file "Skype.bat" containing: skype.exe /datapath:"Data" /removable
4. Run the program from your USB stick... (Double click Skype.exe)

This weeks show was cut short by 6 minutes, because if technical problems.
1) Wow sometimes they come up with the perfect solution to a problem. I have been rather critical of gene mixing between species. It just seems such a slippery slope this just goes to show I have my price for jumping on board if this works as advertised I must admit I am for this idea. Trees that glow providing street lighting and producing oxygen while at the same time reducing co2. http://www.dailymail
2) I have to admit that if I had run across the concept of storm chasing in my youth it might have developed into a life path. This is a truly great site about storm tracking, stunning photography, combine with a great story, be sure to click on the pictures with links for the full panoramic view. http://bigstormpicture.blogspot.com
3) There is so much movement in the phone world I just thought when I saw this it needed to be here. You know me I am not a big mobile phone guy. This is not exactly mobile phone but, quite interesting how about the whole desk top just one big phone, sorry seems totally useless to me. http://www.zurmat.com
4) I was torn between this and the link I used as my green link so I just thought I would put it here. I was wondering about this concept for a while now, and I am glad to see someone doing something with it. The idea of just pumping heat energy out of the tail pipe always seemed like a waste to me. http://green.blorge.com
5) Hoping not to steal any of Earl’s thunder, but tomorrow is cyber Monday so I could not resist this article about many deals for my geek spot http://finance.yahoo.com
