HOORAY, I needed one of these.

(I'm guessing it'll be a really titchy 16MB thing, but it's still useful for school).

It's full of information on how to legally acquire and maintain licenses for Microsoft software products. Of course, the goal is to reformat it and use the space for yourself.

If there's balance in the universe, someone will need to do the opposite marketing campaign: Give away a USB stick full of information on how to maintain a safe and effective large-scale software piracy operation.

"Well, got to love you and leave you, need to go get into the shower and rub my hard naked body all over with soapy bubbles, I'll be back later to carry on playing....

It'll take you some time to get over the image of me naked in the shower......mind you don't masturbate to hard thinking about it...."

My resume's bigger than 16 MB.

I thought the smallest anyone was making now is 64 MB.

Mine was available for viewing with Google Earth but the government decided it should be guarded against threats to national security.
