    I was wondering haw hard would it be to run Web-Os doctor off a thumb drive ? A portable app so to speak . Sometimes when i travel i dont have the time to download but would have time to run it off a thumb drive . Just curious , thanks.

    Yeah, that works, as long as the host computer has the proper version of Java installed.

    you can run Java off a thumb drive you know .

    So you would need a Doctor for deviceX, a Java installer and the Universal Novacom Installer on a USB stick?

    I could maybe see the benefits...

    But why are you needing a Doctor away from home so often? I suppose it would be a good toolkit if you were a traveling repair service for others.

    I wonder that too. If you're prone to Doctoring for every somewhat nontrivial problem, you're overdoing it. (I did write that piece about why you shouldn't Doctor.)

    I was at my inlaws when a hard reset turned into a full reset somehow, I was just showing some photos and had some that were there, but not showing up , and they have no internet . They do have a computer .Yes they live in the hills , 5 miles from town . I do keep a thumb drive of portable apps and got to thinking if this would be possible. I don't doctor it as a rule but I wished I had access to it so to make it a clean reset , even though I could not restore anything without internet . But I saw a comment about wether Doctor would always be available . So it is a thought , but what other tools could be put on a drive to assist in any issues that could pop up ?

    I see. It's not really running Doctor from a flash drive, but sneakernetting it.

    And ours would be the only operating system that this could be done with . Bragging rights .Or how about installing preware from a thumb drive ?
