I've worked with portable Firefox. Two words: sssslllllloooo........oooowwwwww.

It works ok, it just lags. YMMV.

I tested some new equipment in the field: turns out a new water bottle I like is useless -- water comes out very very slowly. ( no way for air to get into the bottle)

Which is why I test my gear...

( I've also started working out, again. )

PS Great topic.

Linux is great, I have no firewall, virus scanner or spyware scanner.... yet had less problems than windows where I had all of that... (router is the best security if you are goin for security BTW)

Also got received a simple bright yellow bag that might come in handy.

I bought some more 100' lengh 550 cord from the Supply Captain, bought another Coleman stove, single burner ApexII model, simmers really well. Bought the NOLS cookbook and a case of water. Pretty much all duplicate items except the particular cookbook.
I am a sucker for backpacking stoves:) I usually only carry the Snow Peak cartridge stove, I like the ease of use and light, compact design.
Anyway, that was about all I spent money on this week.

i was a volenteer for a decontamination exercise for the fire department. Went to 2 exercises last week, but as a guest for one of them, so i didn't had to be decontaminated for one of them. It's interesting to see the diffrence between diffrent regional units.

Nope no pictures of the basha-holder. I generally don't take much pictures of my kit.

Where there any really significant differents?? I know there is a national protocol for a deco-exercise,
but I can imagine there are differences.
