PostPoints tip: Name flash drives by size
Those little flash-memory USB storage devices--you may call them flash drives, USB keys, keychain drives, memory sticks or whatever--are far more useful than the floppy disks they've replaced. But if you have more than a few lying around, you may have trouble remembering which ones have the most space available. Even plugging them into the computer won't answer that immediately (since Windows XP somehow fails to list their capacity under the My Computer window's "Details" heading). Meanwhile, most flash drives don't exactly have interesting names of their own. So instead, try naming each drive after its capacity: "2 GB drive," "512MB key," and so on.
