Pen Drive - USB Flash Memory Stick Module

The end of Floppy Disk is coming, today everybody use Flash Disk to saving their computer data, me too :)
I have a 128MB PenDrive Flash Disk with Giraffe rubber PenSkinz, I bought it several months ago, with a little disappointed because in the next month the price was reduced to half :(
There is no standard name for this device, sometime called with USB Flash Disk, USB Flash Stick, USB Disk, USB Flash Drive, USB Drive, etc.
The Flash name is came from the memory IC (Integrated Circuit) type that used with this device, knowing as Electronic Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory, usually used for BIOS IC on Computer Motherboard. This IC can be use to saving data and will keep that data even no electricity on it, difference from RAM (Random Access Memory) that will erased all data after no electricity supply on it.

My Newest Computer

I bought this computer with money that earned from internet business, I love this computer, it is not Pentium 4 but the speed can be compared with them, this is fast and reliable, can work with multiple program that I always do everyday, it work from early morning and shutdown in the middle of the night, how strong is it?
This computer using AMD Athlon XP Thoroughbred 2400 processor, which works at 2000 MHz speed. With 512 DDR 3200 Memory and 80 Gigabyte Hard drive.
I put several fans added to this system because I had experience with the heat problem with this processor, I just knowing if the statement about heat problem with AMD Processor is true, so I must sure the air circulation in my CPU Case is free to flow, even I opened all of the 5.12" bays for air input. The noisy sound of the entire fans will heard when I turn this computer on. I planned to change the cooling system with water cooler, but this device is still expensive for me.
Now I'm collecting my money to buy a graphic card, because I'm bored to use the on board Graphic Adapter that have limitation to running the latest Game Title.
That is my Computer, I am still love it and don't want to upgrade it yet.
