I still can't get anything to download. Not listed in purchases or unfinished download.

If you don't come back, we'll know something catastrophic happened.

Thanks, I know some people who depend on the voice feature now, so I'm really looking forward to seeing how Apple builds on that, specifically.

You must do this because the installer deletes itself automatically when it finishes installing.

2. Get a USB flash drive that is at least 8 GBs. Prep this flash drive as follows:

Open Disk Utility in your Utilities folder.
After DU loads select your flash drive (this is the entry with the mfgr.'s ID and size) from the left side list. Click on the Partition tab in the DU main window.
Under the Volume Scheme heading set the number of partitions from the drop down menu to one. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.) Click on the Options button, set the partition scheme to GUID then click on the OK button. Click on the Partition button and wait until the process has completed.
Select the volume you just created (this is the sub-entry under the drive entry) from the left side list. Click on the Erase tab in the DU main window.
Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.) Click on the Options button, check the button for Zero Data and click on OK to return to the Erase window.
Click on the Erase button. The format process can take up to an hour depending upon the flash drive size.

3. Locate the saved Mountain/Lion installer in your Downloads folder. CTRL- or RIGHT-click on the installer and select Show Package Contents from the contextual menu. Double-click on the Contents folder to open it. Double-click on the SharedSupport folder. In this folder you will see a disc image named InstallESD.dmg.

4. Plug in your freshly prepared USB flash drive. You are going to clone the content of the InstallESD.dmg disc image to the flash drive as follows:
"You are going to clone the content of the InstallESD.dmg disc image to the flash drive as follows:.....................????"

What happened to the rest of the instructions?

Weird, I copied it from an Apple support thread, guess I missed highlighting some of it, this should be all of it:

4. Plug in your freshly prepared USB flash drive. You are going to clone the content of the InstallESD.dmg disc image to the flash drive as follows:

Double-click on the InstallESD.dmg file to mount it on your Desktop.
Open Disk Utility.
Select the USB flash drive from the left side list.
Click on the Restore tab in the DU main window.
Select the USB flash drive volume from the left side list and drag it to the Destination entry field.
Drag the mounted disc icon from the Desktop into the Source entry field.
Double-check you got it right, then click on the Restore button.

When the clone is completed you have a fully bootable installer that you can use without having to re-download Mountain/Lion.

Has anyone made a USB installer of Mountain Lion following those instructions and then actually tried installing from it?

I made a USB stick of Lion following instructions on the net which I thought were credible.
Never needed to use it since my last download from the Apple store worked for Lion, but when I tried to use my Lion Install stick later, it turned out to be useless.

Well the 30 minute install took 1 hour and a bit but it's working. Signed onto iCloud. Tweaking a few things and then I'll dicate a post in the dictate thread.
Smooth installation. I'm impressed.
