    root@london:~# rm "lack of respect for microsoft" 
    rm: cannot remove `lack of respect for microsoft'
    Ok I take it one step further.

    root@RH8# touch bill gates and steve ballmer are the problem

    rm bill gates and steve ballmer are the problem

    cannot remove 'bill gates and steve ballmer are the problem' due to file dependence on users unable to access their cerebellum

    rm -rf bill gates and steve ballmer are the problem

    cannot remove 'bill gates and steve ballmer are the problem' due to insufficient human rights

    Got this in an email in the days of Win3.1

    A file that big?*
    It might be very useful.*
    But now it is gone.*

    Windows NT crashed.*
    I am the Blue Screen of Death.*
    No one hears your screams.*

    Out of memory.*
    We wish to hold the whole sky,*
    But we never will.*

    Chaos reigns within.*
    Reflect, repent, and reboot.*
    Order shall return.*

    Yesterday it worked
    Today it is not working*
    Windows is like that*

    ABORTED effort:*
    Close all that you have.*
    You ask way too much.*

    First snow, then silence.*
    This thousand dollar screen dies*
    so beautifully.*

    You step in the stream,*
    but the water has moved on.*
    This page is not here.*

    Rather than a beep*
    Or a rude error message,* T
    hese words: "File not found."*

    A crash reduces*
    your expensive computer*
    to a simple stone.*

    The Tao that is seen*
    Is not the true Tao, until*
    You bring fresh toner.*

    Three things are certain:*
    Death, taxes, and lost data.*
    Guess which has occurred.*

    Having been erased,*
    The document you're seeking*
    Must now be retyped.*

    With searching comes loss*
    and the presence of absence:*
    "My Novel" not found.
    "Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."
    ~Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
