Plans for the implimentation of of a new device has arrisen.

I've been thinking about my idea of a removable, bootable, device that holds a users settings and preferences form a previous session. There are many ideas about how to impliment this idea, but to start with the easyest way is to burn the image onto CD-RW but thats time consuming. So the most practical way would be to construct some sort of removable storage that the host system can boot from, and then into the users prefered envirnonment ie, the last session that the user was accustomed to.
I think its a great idea and hopefully will generate lots of interest throughout the comunity. Im going to set up a sourceforge account soon, followed by a homepage for the project. Only thing is I cant think of a name for the project - Any idea's please?
