Must have resources for a Survival Laptop

I just came across this today in my search for ideas about Survival laptops. Many "Must Have" books and magazines here, in my opinion.

Obviously, it would be better to have Hard Copies of these books, but if you are like me, on a limited budget, you do what you can.

Most items are downloaded via a "Torrent" client. if you don't have any idea what this is, visit the source site and scroll down for "Torrent 101". Demonoid is currently open to free memberships, which is required.

Survival Communication - Tools for Sight and Sound

By Richard Wheeler (Zephyris) 2007.
Many survival scenarios will depend upon your ability to communicate your situation to others in order to be found or rescued. It is therefore important to remember that effective communication involves both sight and sound.
While our hearing and sight may not be the best due to our physical limitations, there are simple and effective ways to enhance our ability to communicate. A couple of simple and ordinary items can help you communicate in a more effective matter.
The Whistle
Communicating with sound is a normal means of communication familiar to everyone. While some people seem able to talk forever, they can quickly revert to yelling and screaming when the worst happens. This won’t be sustainable for a very long period and a painful moan can be even harder for someone else to hear. This is when you will need a simple whistle. The sound of a whistle is easily heard, can carry a long distance and is more sustainable for a longer duration than yelling till your lungs pop. A whistle is one of the most effective ways to communicate by sound in both daylight and darkness.
The Mirror
Visual communication is also an effective and common means of communicating. We wave at people at people every day but sometimes we go unnoticed because we failed to get their attention. Flash a bright light in their eyes and all of a sudden you’ve got their complete and undivided attention. This is when a simple mirror becomes an effective means of communication. A little reflected sunlight hitting them in the eyes will get someone’s attention in a hurry. Bright flashes of light are an effective way to get noticed quickly and most any reflective surface can be used for this purpose.

Got sight and sound for survival?

Staying above the water line!
