Congratulazioni, paisan.

It's always pleasant to hear from someone whom we've helped, especially
when the final outcome was in some degree of doubt.

My offer of a physical copy of the Ubuntu Network Remix CD v 1.01[1] is, of
course, remaining open.  I'm always glad to duplicate discs from CABAL's
collection, especially where that helps people maintain the independent
ability to re-load their machines with their choices of Linux distros.
(As I mentioned earlier, I think it's vital that people have that
ability.  Otherwise, they tend to approach Linux as if it were fragile,
which they really shouldn't need to do.)  

Of course, at the moment your USB flash drive qualifies, and it has the 
advantage that you don't have to borrow a USB CD drive to boot from it
-- so maybe you're all set?

Don't forget, we do CABAL every 2nd and 4th Saturday evening, except a
few occasions per year when Deirdre and I are out of town.  So, we'd be
glad to have you come back down, if only just to hang out and chat.

During dry/warm months, it's much nicer, as we then mostly use the very
pleasant back yard and porch.  As I mentioned earlier, I'm also glad to
help make sure visiting San Franciscans sans car can get home
(preferably by prior arrangement), getting them to BART or CalTrain, or
if necessary driving them back to S.F.
