    RMPrepUSB - Bootable USB format utility

    Post by Coolname007 on Wed May 26, 2010 11:38 pm

    Got an email today from the boot-land forums, of which I am a member.
    Told me about a utility for formatting UFDs (USB flash drives).

    Here's the link:

    http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=7739

    The utility is called RMPrepUSB, and is similar to the HP Format utility, and should be better at creating a USB flash drive that will boot on most systems successfully. I have not tried this utility myself yet, but it sounds like it could be useful, so thought I'd post it. sunny

    Indeed, I've been looking for ways to make sure my USB watch is compatible with any computer I come into contact with that needs fixing.

    I've actually been aware of thier tools for awhile now. They had some of this functionality built into fbinst too but I'll look into this Smile

    Hey, that's cool. Smile
    I was not aware of a watch which has a usb flash drive built-in, though I've had many different kinds of watches in the past. For example, one of the special watches I've had was able to forecast the weather and stuff. Two others were 22-channel (14 FRS and 8 GRMS channels) two-way radio watches. One of them was the same one that can be found at this link.
    I love gadgets too, but lately haven't been keeping up with the latest technology, though I probably should start to again soon.

    Use it as my regular watch. I've got a whole bag dedicated to computer repair when I go out to work on a computer, but the watch is around for emergencies.

    If you're actually interested in a USB watch in the future I'd recommend this one instead. With it the USB part is separate, where you simply place it into the watch's case when not in use. With mine its not detachable, and is a PITA because you haft to have the extension cable if you want to connect it easily, just one more thing to carry around.

    Interesting watch there, never heard of walkie talkie built into a watch before. Shouldn't be surprised though. That site I linked to above have other crazy watches too, like a full media player and screen built into it. I wouldn't want to go around with that on my wrist!

    Nice! That's a sweet watch. And the price is pretty reasonable too. $50 ain't that bad. I was expecting to be in the $60-$70 range or something.
    I think I'll probably get that someday. Can't afford to get it now though.

    Yeah...all kinds of cool gadgets out these days. cheers
    I used to be into spy equipment and stuff (still am, actually). There are all sorts of gadgets in that field.
    Have you ever subscribed to the Eye Spy magazine before? They've got pretty cool articles and stories about real-life spies. Plus, with the subscription, they send you a spy equipment catalog which has lots of cool spy gadgets in it that you can buy. Stuff that real spies might use, such as all kinds of cameras, bugs, voice changers, phone taps, etc., etc...
    Plus, they got counter-spy stuff too.
    I love how people make one product to do something, then people make something to counter that other something (often the same people make the two conflicting products), and then so on, and so on...
    The battle of who has the best spy equipment and the best anti-spy equipment rages on. bounce

    EDIT: As a matter of fact, I just looked at my own copy of the spy equipment catalog, and I see something called "X-Ray Spray". You can spray it on an envelope, and it will turn opaque paper temporarily translucent, allowing the user to view the contents of an envelope without ever opening it. Thirty seconds after the application, the envelope will return to its original state, leaving absolutely no markings, discoloration, or other indications of use. That's just one example...there are way more. Smile
