The Economist really just went and made an ad for Mastodon

Do you want to install linux on this flash drive like you would on a hard drive, or just use it as a way to boot on the iso file (like with a CD) ?
If it's the second choice, I'd recommend using yumi or something similar to create your usb flash drive. But be aware that except for distros that are using casper, you won't be able to save any changes you make to the OS.
No need for partitioning that way.

To install on a flash drive, just proceed like you would with a hard drive :)

The missing persons search enhancement is a good use case, you're right !

@mcpaccard
The technology is great, but unfortunately I can only think of bad applications coming out of this.
If anyone has a good idea, I'd be glad to read it ! :)

I’ll never forgive the internet for training a generation of artists and writers to call what they make “content.”

Boxes have contents. You’re a fucking ARTIST. You make ART. Own it.

@Gargron
Kudos to you !
Take care :)

Est-ce que tu connais plantnet ? Bon, ça ne remplace pas un botaniste avisé, mais des fois ça fonctionne et ça peut rendre service. (par contre ça tient de la place...perso j'ai essayé, j'ai trouvé sympa, mais j'ai désinstallé faute de place.)

@carbontwelve @ramsey
Good to know ! I was wondering what it was.
Hop ! Straight to the bat-cave to get rid of it :)
Thanks for the tip !

@Gargron
That will not help for the actual problem, but for future ones : maybe a regular reminder option (active by default) to all admins & moderators could help to prevent this situation.
Like, if the instance is 1 version late, you get 1 reminder/week (email or/and on screen). If it's 2 then 2/week, etc.
This can become pretty annoying so either they do the upgrade to get rid of it, or they deactivate the option and you don't have to worry because it means they don't give a shit.
