SS: A useful item in my kit is a external USB-CD/DVD drive.
LS: In the past I've built every boxen with a CD/DVD and most of
them only needed it for installation or problem, so I've accumulated
copious drives over the years. One external CD/DVDS drive solved
all that and saved money & time and I can copy CDs/DVDs when required.
