Dude (or Dudette), where's my script?
I wrote my first basic script.
I dropped it in rc0.d so it would execute on shut down and reboot.
I was doing some system modifications that required reboot and I didn't want the script to run so I renamed it to what I *thought* would keep it from running but leave it in place so I could come back and "fix" it when I was ready for it to run again.
It's not in rc0.d anymore.
It has now "disappeared".
I can't find it anywhere on my system.
It is still executing on shut down and reboot.
Where did my friggin script go?

So where was it?"I used to be with it, then they changed what it was.
Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
It'll happen to you too."

It was one of those "learning experiences". Yuck!
The naming convention I used, which I thought would stop it form executing, just made it hidden instead and did not stop it from executing.
Since it was hidden and I didn't think to look for hidden files in the GUI or TTY I couldn't "see" it.
