Ouch

Don’t sudo telinit 6 all willy-nilly in a terminal without thinking twice. I just restarted this server accidentally! Very ouch.

I’ve decided to have this alias in my .bashrc:

alias telinit="echo Do you really want to telinit this server?!"

Downtime

Sorry for those who read the site (all 1 of you). Linode decided to suspend my account when payment failed. Perfectly within their rights, sure.

The problem I have is that they neglected to contact me to explain A) that payment had failed and I risk suspension and B) that they had suspended my account.

Nice. Real smooth.

The blog starts anew

Every bloody blog in the universe has one of these posts. It’s unavoidable.

The old domain’s been retired (blog.alexcollins.org) and I’m writing new stuff on alexcollins.org/blog. Do read, it might be of some use to you!
