I didn't say that. If I made that impression I didn't intend to. I 
removed it by hand about 2 hours back but that u-sd has not been 
inserted in the pi yet as I'm also the chief cook and bottle washer here 
and it was time I played chef with a bag of beef stir fry to feed the 
two of us.  With the missus disabled, I do it all. And next is to go 
recycle the dishwasher. :(
