    You do the Alt+SysRq+ R-E-I-S-U-B combination on a university Ubuntu computer to restart it and the person who got it stuck goes "wow, how did you do that?"

    Backups are amazing. 99% of data loss can be prevented by spending less than $100 on an external drive.

    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
