But this stick is one of the most used in my arsenal. It boots Hiren's Boot CD while all the other sticks are too busy "holding files".
Once upon a time a 1Gb stick would have cost you near $1000, now they are kind of junk / surplus.
Mine deserves fixing.
Sugru to the rescue!
Step 1: Break Out the Sugru
I hold in my hand 1 packet of Sugru, molded into a cube of sorts.
I estimate the volume is 1.5 cm cubed.
I am a very big person, so your comments of "no way, that cant be more than 1cm" are countered.
Step 2: Lay It Out Like Pig in a Blanket
Step 3: Wrap and Press
And from wrapping a pancake around the stick, there are unsightly seams.
These are remedied by smoothing with your thumb like you would do clay.
Step 4: Smooth...
The creases have been smoothed out, a little shaping at the collar, and we are ready to let it sit overnight.
Good to go!
