And in the “I just fucked up category”

So I’ve got a terminal open in X, and I type “sudo shutdown -h now” at the prompt. Enter my password, and see the warning.

Then I wonder – why is my laptop still powered up? And I look…

…and I’m ssh’ed into the main wZ login box, and I’ve just shut *IT* down.

Fortunately, I could get a call into inflow before the local office closed, but talk about a sphincter tightener….

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
