Let me see if I can explain this:

- Lets say you have a machine with bitcoin installed, along with the wallet

- You go to the GUI and SEND 1 BTC to some address

- That computer now sends a packet/signal to the network to make the transaction

- However, said computer is vulnerable as it is connected to the internet

- Can that packet/signal INSTEAD be created on a machine that holds the wallet, but is NOT connected to any network, and instead be put on a USB

- Then the USB is connected to any networked PC, regardless of whether it has bitcoin installed, and the Transaction packet/signal is then broadcast

THUS, leaving the machine with the wallet securely disconnected from the net at all times.

the USB can now be formatted/discarded/microwaved

It would work, but you would have to implement the functionality in the client.

Sorry, I can't help you with your lost password.
