I've made the investment of a USB stick with 128MiB flash memory.  This
stores my SSH keys, GPG keys, and tools to use them on various OSen.
Most places I go will have a USB port available on some machine
somewhere; I just plug in my memory stick and fire up the SSH client.

This is not appropriate in all circumstances, but it greatly increases
the number of places from which I can access my accounts without using
password authentication.
