What software do you run from your USB flash drive?

Besides data files, I've been keeping two things on mine:

A password keeper. PasswordSafe (http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net/)
keeps all my passwords to web sites in a reliably encrypted database.

A screen capture program. IrfanView (http://www.irfanview.com/) has a
fairly good screen capture feature. When I'm at an engineer's desk or
test station, I can capture screens directly to the flash drive. No
huge BMP files, no pausing to paste captures into Paint, no leftover
file clutter. A simpler alternative I've run from a flash drive is
flash.exe, which comes with the MS HTML Help Workshop.

My criteria for putting a program on my flash drive are:
1. It's got to be VERY useful to have with me.
2. It should be freeware, to avoid licensing issues.
3. It must be able to run from the flash drive without installing it
on the host computer.
