80-talets klassiska Unixskräckis

Mario Wolczko:

Have you ever left your terminal logged in, only to find when you came back to it that a (supposed) friend had typed “rm -rf ~/*” and was hovering over the keyboard with threats along the lines of “lend me a fiver ’til Thursday, or I hit return”? Undoubtedly the person in question would not have had the nerve to inflict such a trauma upon you, and was doing it in jest. So you’ve probably never experienced the worst of such disasters….

Allt var bättre förr, då man läste in en backup Unix under drift, från ett band.
