Mensagem:  Thanks to you all.

It was great to learn about "thumb drive", which I had no idea of.

Actually, it was in a post-graduate class that the teacher brought it up just out of curiosity.

He asked us for a DATA TRAVELER, which I know that was a Kingston brand, and wondered why he hadn´t said "pen drive"...

Then he said it was just like the "outdoor" vs. "billboard" thing (which we "estamos carecas de saber" how´d say that????? rrssrr)... that we Brazilians end up mixing up.

He said "pen drive" was "Portuglish" :( .... I felt so dumb for not having known it beforehand.... gee!

Thanks fellows. I´m feeling kinda ´not-so-stupid-for-the-time-being´ after all.
See?
