I hate working on laptops.....

You're right about the monitor thing.  Seems that the more heat something produces, the better the whack-fix works!

I hate working in the cramped confines of a mid tower case!

Some odds and ends I carry to work every day:
The white box is a small first aid kit, greay box is Tums :P


Bag emptied; that Swiss bit kit and driver has come in really handy over the past few weeks.

Nice kit!  It looks like you're well prepared.  I spy some handy Countycomm items there.  Where did you get the bit set with extension?

I don't remember exactly, but it's probably from a discount store with a big selection of made in china tools :D

The red holder is rubber, and at one time it had a rubber cap that would fit over the exposed bits.  They can probably be found on ebay pretty cheap.

Here's a similar bit kit.  Mine were just the basics though; Phillips slotted, hex, allen, torx, Robertson...but you can put anything you want in the rubber holder.

I have a new bag! - My kit is now back to it's glorious fully equipped self, complete with ratcheting screwdrivers, adjustable spanners, & bolt cutters.

(I've also upgraded my 256mb "flash disk" to a 60gb portable drive.)

As for the other thing - I am a big supporter of the Technical Tap when it comes to computer fixing.

Great set up, but a tea bag.  :think:  Where in the pouch does that reside?

A tea bag...for when you want...tea 8)

There are two zipperd compartments on that bag...one on the front side (in pic 2), and another on the top flap.  I keep the tea in that front pouch.  Drinking a tea after working out in the cold for a while warms you up pretty good, and it helps you get back up and running if you get sluggish after eating a big meal :D  Tea is better than instant coffee IMO.

That looks like a handy bag corrugated, and a nice size.  Where does one find a bag like that?

Generally in fairly dank and unsavoury areas of town, where people gather to create WiFi hotspots and, err, send email alerts?

I'm not actually sure what people with "smart phones" and those tiny- hand computers do, but they seem to have those little gear bags when they do it.

You can of course fill the bags with multitools and knives, but my understanding is that they are designed to comfortably hold a PDA, your asthma "puffer" and a scrunched up centrefold from your favourite magazine.


Nite Ize do them, as does Maxpedition, check your favourite Bag & pack brands, they seem to be reasonably common.

Wow, another member asked my also through a PM...I didn't know that bag was so interesting :think:

First off there's no tags or names anywhere on it.  I got it for $10 from a member on edcdepot.com a while ago.  On the back there's a big wide loop to attach it to your belt or pack, and there's a shoulder strap also which I removed for the time being.  It's pretty well built IMO, no flimsy although it's probably a knockoff.  It may be a cheap camera bag or something :think:

I have a similar type of bag that I use every time I travel. I bought this last December for 300.00 pesos, or an equivalent to 7.30 USD. The center compartment is for my digicam, the other compartments are for all my EDCs.

Front view showing front side pocket and the detachable shoulder strap.


It has 3 main compartments with zipper


Another front side pocket with velco closure


Back view showing the belt straps.

My EEC kit is ever evolving.  Can't do pics as laptop is FUBARed an I'm using my 32Gig Ipod Touch to surf on.

Work days , either a Swisstool or Spirit and a Vicki Rescue Tool. Off work a Learman Skeletool CX , an a Vic. Cadet.   Add a Surefire ( either an E1L , or an L1 ) and a AAA lite ( Arc AAA P , Streamlite Microstream or Stylus pro. ).
Plus pens , pencils , wallets , notebooks , and Ipod. Not to forget sunglasses , phone , an assorted mundane caca.

I picked up that wallet from "knuckleduster" on http://edcforums.com/index.php
He made a couple of batches of them a while back.
I don't know if he is making any more.

You can fit a 111 or 120mm SAK in it easily.

The blue Skipper in the picture above is also a 111, and thicker than a GAK or OHT.
I can fit an Alinghi in there (biggest of Wenger's 120mm Ranger series).

A GAK would fit easily.
