Exclamation Is there any way to get Ubuntu without a burner?


Ok, I downloaded the .iso file for Ubuntu, and was very much looking forward to having this new OS, but as it so happens, the bane of my existance, a CD-RW is not in my possession, and its rather to late for a pit stop into wal-mart..... on top of that, Im broke.


Is there anyway for me to get Ubuntu now, skipping the burning process?
