I posted the other week about the conversation that was going on in the RSS world about synchronizing aggregators.
One of our users, the intriguingly-named Squeg, suggested that you could install Awasu onto a USB thumb-drive and just carry the whole thing around. What a cool idea!
There are just a few issues to take into account:
- Awasu uses your account name to identify you so if you logon to each computer using a different account, Awasu will think you're a new user each time and create a new setup for you. To stop this from happening, create a DEBUG.INI file in the Awasu installation directory that looks like this:
- Awasu stores filenames using full paths so you need to mount the USB drive using the same drive letter each time.
And it works great! Granted, it's a bit slow but it's the ultimate in making sure everything's always in sync 🙂 You could even use one of these if speed is an issue.
