Default Building a pc repair kit

I was just wondering what everyone carries around for tools, utilities, etc when they work on pc's for people (and what do you carry it in, laptop bag?).

I'd like to build a little repair kit and here's what I'm thinking so far-

screwdriver with changeable bits
USB 2.0 CD/DVD burner
blank Cd's and DVD's (for backup purposes)
extra power cable
extra USB cables
compressed air
zip ties for holding down wires
extra IDE/SATA cables (rounded)
USB 2.0 hard drive (to hold utilities and for backup purposes)
extra stick os RAM
CAT 5 Cable

and o course, some utilties...

MS antispyware
SP2 and updates (for people with 56k connections)
winzip/winrar (trial version)
file recovery software

Anyone feel like helping me out with this?

i carry a crapload of discs of software, including just about every windows OS and service pack. a screwdriver in my back pocket and a static strap.
