Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

Please, please, please – if you think that something I do here will fix an issue you have, please confirm that we’re talking about the same things. Don’t run a command that will wipe out your whole Kerberos database if you’re having an issue opening a single file. Don’t demote a single Open Directory Master with no replicas when you have hundreds of users that should be logged into the OD structure at any given time. Don’t wipe out the LUN of that NetApp. Don’t rm something recursively that shouldn’t be rm’d. I realize that “Google-fu” is a great skill to have, but it is also a danger to you and those around you if the symptoms or goals don’t match up. When I post something and when others out on the world wide bandwagon do so, take the advice and experience of others with caution. Especially if what you will be doing is destructive…

    Too funny! I would love to hear the story that inspired this post. Maybe another time.
