[IAEP] Sugar in a Plug

One of the things I find precarious about Sugar on a Stick with normal USB
drives on laptops or netbooks is how far they protrude from the side. I
always feel the risk of an accidental knock against the USB drive, which
would break it off from the plug.
The gadget blogs recently showed what was billed as the world's smallest
MicroSD card adapter called the EagleTec NanoSac. I bought one from Brando
Hong Kong to try out with a 2gb MicroSD card. It took about three weeks to
The Strawberry release of Sugar loaded fine onto the MicroSD card through
the adapter using LiveCD creator. I then switched the boot order in the BIOS
of the Sun tower that made the Sugar Stick and rebooted. Sugar started up
perfectly. See my photos:
It was kind of amazing to see a device less than the volume of a sugar cube
take over a tower PC and 24" LCD monitor.
Cost was around USD $30 for the adapter and card.
