    The corrected USB images should be on the mirrors now. Sorry about
    the inconvenience, I've tracked down this issue and put some code
    into place to detect if a boot-stamp goes awry :)<br>
    <br>
    As for testing, we always can use new testers, if you stay on this
    list you will see announcements posted for 9.1.1 testing images in
    the near future, and we welcome any and all feedback on any bugs
    found!<br>
