I know a better way.  Don't install the updates while you are standing

Take notes (if you feel you need to) on all Feisty updates, in case there
are any you are worried about, and just download those in person.

The rest you can update overnight - just set a cron job before you leave.

And if you did it even more frequently, you could build your own Feisty
CD/DVD with the latest updates already on it.  Not that hard, really.
