I am a bit scared by the catastrophic potential of
cat debian.iso > /dev/sdX
for X = valuable hard disk.
Maybe one should advise people to first read a few MB from the stick
and watch it blinking, before one uses that address for writing
dd if=/dev/sdX of=/dev/null bs=1M count=100
Have a nice day :)
