Your backpack is like Batman's utility belt!

Hey Max, 

You travel like a socially maxed out teen-ager. I'm an old f*rt by comparison. Just my laptop, notebook, chargers and a pair of noise cancelling headphones.

What can I say, I'm old and set in my ways. I still prefer programming in assembly, too.

@Brian: What sort of headphones do you have? Back in 2011 I picked up some Sony MDR-NC500D headphones and I LOVE them!!! (Click Here to read my blog on them)

Very nice (I ready your review). As my noise cancellation requirements are more coffee shop than 747 I get by with a cheaper pair of folding Sennheisers. They don't create total silence but are good enough for Peet's.

Don't even get me started on my utility belt :-)

You have a laser? Or an exploding fake moustache?

Wow, Max!! You should be a tough man for carrying such amount of stuff around!! LOL

I always carry a leather handbag with all my stuff inside, but instead of carrying my own electronic devices, I carry a kit to fix -- or "parasitize" -- other people ones. Let me explain:

* 3-4 USB aimed with diferent bootable live OS images -- both 32 and 64 bits!!

* 1x 500GB USB external disk loaded with tons of useful software, including Virtul Box and virtual disk images ready to be played in any virtualization platform -- I've come to the conclusion that having my workspace in a virtual disk is very useful for making back-up copies and when you use to switch from one machine to another.

* An old S60 Nokia with integrated sliding keyboard -- yes it's an old device, but I've a lot of custom C apps running on it that I want to keep available!

* 1x MicroSD to USB conversor

* USB to PC cable

* 1x standard MicroUSB Charger

* ... and a load of tobacco, rolling paper, etc. -- time flows slowly when you are reinstalling an OS or compiling a huge application!!

Funny you should ask about the moustach. One evening at Design West 2013 I was invited by a company to an evening event that featured the "Moustache Camera" that was at the show -- by some strange quirk of fate I just happened to have a carved wooden moustach on a stick in my backpack (I always carry one in case of emergencies :-)

Interesting idea to carry the systems on USB sticks and then just use whatever computer is handy -- it speaks to a day in the future when everything is in the cloud -- but it wouldn;t work for me at the moment.

 

Re the tobacco .... STOP .... one of my friends who smokes was just rushed to hospital a couple of weeks ago with a breathing attack -- he wa sin for about 10 days -- at one point they didn;t think he was going to make it -- now he's back at home with a portable oxygen tank -- they don;t know if he will ever be able to go back to workm, and he's only 58 years old.  Instead, carry a good book around with you for when time is flowing slowely :-)
