Q: What's better than a program that does exactly the unusual thing you need done?

A: A bootable, runnable "live cd" linux distro that runs that program!

and it gets things done waaay faster than 'dd', at least for this novice user.

No wonder you make my girlfriend hot.

I coulda used that . . . ten years ago, actually, when it probably was nowhere near existence. Good to know it exists somewhere, though.

My time machine's in the shop, and it's hard to get parts for it until about 30 years from now. If you can wait until then, I may will have let you borrow it last week; I wasn't using it then and I won't be to have been needing it, nor did I have.

But don't break anything or I'll shoot your grandfather.
