I used to be a professional programmer, but economic realities had me move on some time ago. I now program on my own projects at my own pace, while making my paycheck defending my country.

I'm a beginning bicyclist, trying to get into shape by pedaling my ass around town.

I'm always willing. Not always able, though :P I should mention this is on a Windows machine.

comment Swappable hard-drives for laptop
While not quite what I'm looking for, this is probably the best I'm going to get. I'll also do some hunting around, see if I can find a thumbscrew or something similar that will fit into the screw hole. Barring that, I'll try to convince the wife that a new computer is the real solution ;)

comment Swappable hard-drives for laptop
@hardlywired My issue isn't with HD theft. I'm thinking more like my 3-year-old son who will unplug the USB just because he can, or my co-worker "innocently" clearing the table on our shared workspace. Those are acceptable disconnections for a data HD, but not for the OS drive.

comment Something eating space on OS drive
+1 for WinDirStat. Coincidentally, I'm currently running it to find out where my HD space has gone.

That would work great, until someone moves my laptop and not my HD (or vice versa). Happens fairly often at my home & workplace. I have already tried something similar using memory sticks.

Doesn't help me in Canada (yet), but it looks like a good site for those who are able to use it. Gave you the bounty, but still hoping for something more widely available.
