    Busca en tu distribución el programa unetbootin. En Debian basta con apt-get install unetbootin pero no sé cuál usas. Con ese programa puedes crear usb de arranque de cualquier distribución GNU / Linux. Es fácil de usar y efectivo.

    I'm currently driving across the country. I'm in the city of Rochester, Minnesota. I know I've made it to the west as the conversation in the breakfast room was: "I want my husband to get me a Glock" "Phfft! The Glock is just like an iPhone. Everyone says you should have one because of the name, but really it's a piece of crap! And the recoil is bad."

    At least I agree with the locals about the quality of Apple products.

    This is interesting as one of the great unsettled questions in US culture is where the West actually begins.

    The first time I drove cross-country (east to west), I and my fellow travellers drove north from Iowa to Minnesota. We stayed in St. Paul one night and we also stayed in or near St. Cloud (IIRC) one night (in the latter case camping outside someone's house). I can't remember in what order. We then drove west to South Dakota but took a detour to Walnut Grove to visit the Laura Ingalls Wilder museum. There was something about Walnut Grove (and I don't think it had anything to do with the museum) that made me feel that I had just crossed over into the West -- for me, the first time, as prior to that trip the furthest west I'd been was Niagara Falls. Once we made it into South Dakota it was particularly clear that we were in the West in a way that was certainly not true of Minneapolis and St. Paul, or the places in Iowa we'd stopped in.

    Minneapolis-St. Paul doesn't feel Midwestern to me in quite the way that more easterly Great Lakes Rustbelt cities do, but it also doesn't quite seem "West" either. It's tempting to suppose that northwards the Mississippi River is approximately the dividing line between Midwest (not "East") and West, with Minneapolis being sort of an exception.

    On that trip, we drove back eastwards eventually but we took a southern route, so it really provided no insight whatsoever into the question.

    Many years after that I drove from Chicago to Seattle. This didn't provide much insight into the "where does West begin" issue, as we drove up through Wisconsin (clearly Midwest rather than "West") and then drove on I-94 during the evening through Minneapolis to Dilworth, a northwestern Minnesota town near Fargo. I would say it was obvious the next day, driving through North Dakota, that we were in the West and not the Midwest, if only because North Dakota was so empty.

    The following year I drove east from Seattle to New York, this time going through South Dakota. I remember being aware, as I don't think I was on that first trip many years earlier, that eastern South Dakota was not "Western" in the way that western South Dakota clearly was. What I also recall from that trip was the profound sense of reaching some kind of different region once we crossed from Minnesota into Wisconsin (we must have been taking I-90), because the sense of relative emptiness was gone. And I think for the first time I felt an odd commonality between Midwest and East, though I would normally maintain that those are very distinct regions.

    Much more recently I drove from the San Francisco Bay Area to eastern Massachusetts. I took I-80 this time, going through Nebraska and Iowa. I would say that once I got into Nebraska from Wyoming I felt as though I'd gone from "clearly West" to some other region that I wouldn't label West or Midwest. Nebraska also mostly had that "emptiness" quality that seemed to be gone by Omaha and certainly by the time I crossed into Iowa.

    Richard Fontana at 2015-02-21T04:16:20Z

    I would go to great plains to point out the West begins somewhere in the mixed grass prairie zone.

    Welcome again!!

    Some flashes of what happened in the pumpiverse last year:

    Clients have evolved very much. In particular: Dianara, Pumpa, Impeller, Puma (the 1.0beta3 apk is still a beta, but quite improved respect to the binary available in F-Droid),, PPump (hey, have a look at the different menus and options of, for example, this instance: ), Granada, Manivela, NavierStokes, the PyPump library. Probably more...

    More people are selfhosting and there are some community instances (for example #oleole!). Pumplive says now there are 91 hosts.

    Updated documentation, links, user guide... in

    @GNU MediaGoblin is implementing the Pump API to access objects and for federation in the near future, and desktop clients are able to be used as MediaGoblin clients with small tweaks (Dianara 1.2.5 already works for the gobliners, and GMG 0.8 is coming soon!).

    @Evan Prodromou and some more other people are in the W3C SocialWG working for the federated social web.

    Pumpbot @x11r5 speaks Spanish (for example here) and Italian (here). Maybe speaking more languages (apart from English), I'm not sure because I don't follow her.

    Lots of new users, lots of content of many different topics (depending on who you follow, of course...).

    I'm doing crazy interviews to pumpers. Want to be the fourth one? (third one is in progress).

    I can't use AndStatus or Impeller. They both crash constantly. It's been this way for ... months? Longer? :-/

    Douglas Perkins at 2014-12-20T16:10:36Z

    I like how it looks and how it works, especially how it stores everything and discovers conversation context. And it beats Mustard on GNUSocial too.

    It has crashed once since I started using it, Impeller crashes several times per day. Puma doesn't give me context on mentions and meanwhile.

    It's the 21st Century: nothing ever dies anymore and nothing ever will again. All the canceled TV shows come back. All the old TV shows get remade. The old movies get reimagined and the old stars get digitally youthened. The geriatric bands release new discs of old material sewn together in the studio, plus rerelease all their old ones. The old video games get recoded in WebGL when the game shop takes too long rereleasing them for the new engine. The last piece of the trilogy gets stretched and stretched out until it's a trilogy all of its own. Even the politicians are just the younger family members of the old politicians' families. There's nowhere you can hide, and even if there was, the Wayback Machine and Google Cache versions of you would still be here, carrying on like nothing was wrong.
