    Need to protect my activation in case computer is pulled


      I’m on a job using my own copy of After Effects (CS3) but it’s not my computer.  There’s a chance that the vendor supplying the computer may be changed suddenly, and the old computer pulled overnight.  I want to avoid having my activated copy of AE disappear along with the computer.  Is there a way to protect against this?  Ideally I could keep my activation on a USB thumb drive and plug it in when I sit down to work, but Adobe tells me that's not possible.  Any suggestions, short of deactivating every night before I go home?  I know I have two activations left if I lose this one, but I'd hate to lose one this way, and don't want the computer owner to be running around with the third one.
