The write protect switch is a very valuable feature.
Thanks for your work on this. I was becoming skeptical about the RACHEL USB platform, but I just got strong feedback from the field on how helpful the write protect devices were for distributing material to school and teacher laptops, which are often used with a projector.
The write protect feature is essential. So essential, that my contact said that if he could raise funding and distribute a bunch of these he would use Super Glue to lock the write protect slide so as not to risk spreading viruses. Of course, he and I could make our own USB drives, but we think it is really helpful to make these available to new users of RACHEL who shop for RACHEL online. When people need an unprotected USB drive, they can almost always find one.
3.0 will also be very nice. An alternative could be a script to use some utility such as Terracopy, but that is just a suggestion.
Keep up the good work. Ed
