Hi,

And I wonder if NUS got services to help the students to load 
linux/ubuntu on their thumbdrive on that day. If there is it'll be good 
using this, http://klik.atekon.de/liveusb/ <-- Unfortunately we don't 
have this service. However if you want, you can provide on the day.

regards,

Thanh Son
