Santa Claus brought me a 1Gb USB flash drive. I figure since I have 1Gb of space I can carry in my pocket, I need to put something useful on it.
So- what would you put on it? What tools would you consider essential or have you found handy in the past?

The new adaware personal se, a clean av prog, fdisk and related utilities to setup a fresh install.
Even a broken watch is correct twice a day.

There's several that are obvious (Nmap, fport, etc.), but you should consider install files such as spyware removal tools (AdAware, Spybot), personal firewalls, AV solutions (free or demos), system utilities (reg cleaners, enhancers, etc.), and so forth and so on. You never know when you'll be at someone's house and having some of those tools could come in handy...
With 1GB of space, you've got all kinds of possibilites...
