Six days ago, I was busy packing up to travel for a few days. Suddenly,
during a reboot, my laptop stop accepting my password for the LUKS
encrypted root. All my docs, images, work was gone (argh, 1,5 month old
backup) but this is not the real point of this message.
I always have a 4gb usb pen with me and I build a custom fedora live usb
spin every week to keep it updated. This pen saved my life during this
trip. Being unable to use my laptop, without this fedora spin installed
on my pen, I would be carrying 3 to 4 kilos of dead weigth equipment
during my travel.
With this pen, I was able to surf the internet using bluetooth and my
phone, read mail/planets/news, music, videos, check train schedules, the
works. And since I had lost my custom kickstart file, I started a new
one with a bunch of new ideas, some from Fedora's Security LiveCD page.
Now I'm back home and still in the process of rebuildind my laptop with
F9, but there were times during my trip where I didn't miss my old F9
installation (besides my docs) and actually thought of using my hdd has
storage only and keep the OS in the usb pen.
All this leads to one thing, YOU GUYS ROCK! I can't thank you all enough
for the work you've invested in livecd-tools. Without you, none of this
would be possible.
Next time any of you is in Portugal, beer is on me. :)
