  16. Re: What interesting information have you found in /proc?

    Yeah, I am just browsing /proc via the terminal and using cat and less to look at files. Shouldn't it be fairly safe to poke around /proc as long as you don't write anything to it?
  17. What interesting information have you found in /proc?
