Re: Using the remainder of a Linux LiveUSBflashdrive as storage.

That'd require me installing it on every computer I wanted to transfer a file to, wouldn't it? : /

Far from Ideal I'm thinking.

Not to mention the fact that space travel itself is a pretty damn worthy cause if you're at all fond of the human race. Species stuck on one planet have a pretty terrible survival rate.
