I very agree!

There is no limit to the amount of things you can put a thumb drive into really.

What i want to do is have one in my mouse so i can take it to wherever with important stuff on it, and transport files. Im always taking my mouse to work cos these ball mice jsut piss me off.

The plural of Lego has ALWAYS been Lego. Adding the s to the end is not uncommon, especially in the US, but that doesn't make it any less wrong.

I built my IR module for my pc inside a lego brick, and by far the easiest way to seal it is to get a 6X2 brick (or whatever size you want) then cut off 1mm (the thickness of a 6X2 plate, then put the plate on the bottom.

i really wish they shaved a it off, then used a thin 6x2 to seal the base and make it look completely stock though.

I would like to get into modding small stuff like that, but wouldn't know where to begin. It's a nice peice though.

Now what they need to do is create add-on bricks that you can stack on top to add another flash chip to the device
'Tis an incredibly good idea nonetheless, I wouldn't be surprised if someone decides to mass-manufacture these- I can imagine they'd sell pretty well. Beats having USB sushi...

Yes. And if my memory serves me right - Lego is short for Leg-Got, which translates as 'To Play' in Danish.

So, to say 'To Plays' would be insane. Hence legos is insane!

My spelling is most likely wrong, but the theory is there.
