Pipedot USB Drive

in pipedot on (#3JQ)
story imageAs a promotion and a small thank you to the contributers, I am pleased to announce... a free USB drive sporting the Pipedot logo! Although this site is still pretty small, a dedicated few of you have really stepped up and helped submit stories, post comments, and moderate. If you have received an email from me about a drive, simply respond with your shipping info and I'll send you one!

The drive is a modern all metal design with a convenient ring handle. The capacity is four gigabytes and comes preformatted as FAT32 - but otherwise blank. The drive is bootable; and I've used one this week to load Ubuntu 14.04 on a few computers. With a 14.3 MB/s average read and 2.6 MB/s average write speed, it's not going to win any speed competitions, but it sure looks sexy.

Hey this is nice. Good work here, Bryan!

I think the work you're doing on the pipedot backend is great. I just wish I could contribute to it. I checked your git repository but it's basically empty.

I would really like to see the different groups formed out of Slashdot come together some day, however. I think each group would benefit from it.

Regardless, keep up the good work. Really attractive looking USB stick. Have you thought of making it available for purchase as a form of donation? Food for thought :P
