[Nottingham] That old "-rf" thing...

For one little sharp reminder whilst running some scripts from root:


NOTE: If you run ./clean-all, I will be doing a rm -rf ...



(a:) I really shouldn't be root for that!

(b:) Sharp reminder to double check what "pwd" shows...

And why is it that on GUIs, "copy" and "cut" are right next to each
other, and only one shaky mouse click away from disaster?...

Perhaps that is why I prefer the command line. At least you have to be
determined and use more finger motions to court disaster.

Is all of IT just a house of cards?...

Is that why some of us appreciate our beer? :-P

There has got to be a better way!

All in a day's IT,


(Note that no bits have been hurt so far today :-) )
