only gripe is that one of the reasons I decided to buy it was because an
Ars Technica review claimed it worked in unpowerd usb slots (such as in
a keyboard; I have a Mac at the office), but actually, it doesn't.
Otherwise, it's a nice drive, skinny enough not to prevent other usb
things from using the next slot in a packed hub.

automatically create the fstab entries according to the device name. So
my pendrive gets a /media/CruzerMini entry and my portable jukebox gets
/media/iRiver, no matter in which order I plug them in. I love it.
See http://ccomb.free.fr/wiki/wakka.php?wiki=UsbMassStorageEnglish for
the updfstab script.
