    On your person/ In your vehicle / for you job.

    c0nv3r9 has a good point. Lets divide it out.
    1. What do you normaly carry arround with you, not just when you are on the job but almost all the time.
    2. What do you carry in your car/truck/phone booth (for you Dr. Who fans) as backup to what you carry on your person.
    3. What do you carry for work.

    It looks like we have #3 going pretty well, but what about 1 & 2?

    Actually you guys are lucky. You have to cary a bunch of shit for your jobs (assuming you need what you carry).

    I only need a laptop, my software, cellphone, and cables (yes, i carry them).

    Because I do primarily software support I often can get away without going on-site, I just take remote-control of their system. Since we don't have to go on-site as much anymore they are considering cutting down field support and just have a few dedicated people on the road. That means either I get another job or transfer to a job in the corporate office down the road. Either way, I probably lose getting to work at home a lot of the time.

    All because I don't need shit that forces me to go on site.

    I just paid this years installment to my black hole provider. Wrote a big check to IRS.

    I'd rather have a TARDIS instead.
