This may seem obvious to everyone but me, but a few months ago I was searching through my binder of printed instructions and decided there must be a better way.

Since then, I have been printing them as a pdf to a folder on my flash drive. The titles are long and descriptive. I'm gradually creating subfolders for organization., Seems to be a good system.

Anybody else doing something similar?

Any tips?

Yes, but getting away from the binder as I add pdfs.

I've just bought a Sony e-book reader for this purpose. The main downside is that you can't print from the Sony, but if your keep all your files on an SD card you can usually find away to print them from there. That said, the idea behind e-books & PDFs is that you don't need to print out documents!

Sorry, my amazement was in the fact that you had anything at all. I don't.

I guess you don't provide support for bespoke systems?

I provide support for bespoke software and hardware as well as things like POS, DVR's, Access Control, basically if it's in anyway based on PC's I support it. Why?

Without documentation?

Go you!

Not without documentation, but I don't keep the documentation. That's my customer's property. I provide them with all documentation and even a box file to keep it in. On most sites I'm the only person who ever touches it. If they lose it they pay me to find it for them again.

a portable Wiki?

I know doku wiki does not require a database and runs on php.
so a portable version of WAMP might just do the trick (not sure if it exists)
