No, but do think carefully about any suggestions to hide Qubes (in a USB 
stick or on the hard disk). They are likely to work well ALMOST all the 
time, but in the unlikely even that that the covert qubes is spotted, the 
delay could be A LOT longer...

Another option is to label the filesystem, say with 

tune2fs -L foo /dev/sda3

Then, instead of the /dev/xxx entry in fstab, use LABEL=foo like this


LABEL=foo   /mnt/tmpauto user,rw 0 0

That way it will find the relevant partition, even if it moves around in 
the partition table on the real disk, or if it appears on a different 
virtual disk.(not yet tested on Qubes, but this is my normal way of making 
fstab entries persist)

You can also do the same using UUIDs, but I prefer to use meaningful 
identifiers. I am old-school in that respect.

On some packages & web interfaces it is worse than that :(

For example on the gmail app for Android, it hides the quoted text, so it is
far too easy for a newcomer to this forum to not even realise what you meant
when you said "scroll to the bottom of the text."

To be able to bottom post on such platforms, you need to enable the quoted 
text,
typically and confusingly Google calls this "Respond in line". Having done 
that,
the user can then follow your advice to scroll past deleting on the way.

I know this is off topic, but we can help ppl do things the Qubes way if we 
all
try to give them the most detailed advice.

Bottom posting reads better, but so many other forums use top posting, and 
too
many apps nudge this behaviour, so we are likely to have to go on 
explaining this.
