Patrick Verner and the wonderful developer folks that give us Parted Magic have just updated the distro.

It is listed as primarily a bugfix release.
If you use it like I do, as a LiveUSB, there's no reason to not update.
If you haven't tried it yet, now's your chance.

Check out the announcement, download links, and website full of useful tools and help at, http://partedmagic.com/doku.php .

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

There's a method I use for distros like this which get updated often; write it to a dvd+rw blank.  That particular type needs no reformatting, you can just overwrite a previous burn.  I use growisofs to do it here, making the initial burn as the first session of a multisession burn -- which means you can add files or subdirs to the disk without disturbing the original burn.  Having an optical disk (cost = 75 cents) gives me that added bit of insurance that I can boot it on almost any pc that has an optical drive.  

#growisofs -Z /dev/sr0=pmagic-whatever.iso

#growisofs -M /dev/sr0=some_filesystem

First command writes the initial session, the 2nd command is for any later added sessions.  

Only takes a couple minutes for a distro the size of Pmagic.

WOW! I just downloaded and burned a copy of this toolkit CD for the first time. It's awesome! I like it. I am definitely going to be installing this baby on a thumb drive. VERY handy to have around, for sure.

Thanks, Bob! Your SPAM was worth reading and acting upon. Do I need to send you my bank account numbers so you can deposit that 2.5 million that you're trying to get out of your tyrannical government's control? Just let me know..
