    Glad I know how to "man" and use the tab key. That is just plain idiotic IMO.

    Now to go drive my scooter into a pole to see what happens after I chug a pitcher full of hot boiling jalapeņo juice after walking into a junkyard with the rabid gaurd dog in it.

    Sheesh

    Yeah... My system wouldn't last an hour.
    I make so many typos it ain't funny.
    I fumble-finger keys when I type my own name!

    HAHA, this system is definitely not for people like us, Jay.
    I saw this just the other day...I think it's outright insane but kudos to anyone who wants to try it and post their results.

    Haha, that reminds me of a fortune I got the other day... that you should be careful when reading health books, because you could die of a misprint

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Just don't do this as root!
    Beside, I've done the rm -rf thing before as root. IE,
    Code:
    cd /
    # do some stuff here so you forget where you are, and then...
    rm -rf *
    After about a second or two, one of those "Oh sh!t" moments occur!

    I know exactly what you mean! I mean, I type perfectly at almost 100wpm, but my stupid keyboard keeps putting the wrong letters in the data stream!
