What is this?

<edit>
Never mind, I never was a fan of mnemonic's and found them to just require more memory :-)

I don't need. Ubuntu is stable.

When I go down it's usually something utterly fatal like a kernel trap from the iwl3945 modules (so help me Torvalds, if no one fixes those in the next month I'm going to move to another distro).

So, rarely ever.

Never. I only use stable distros/software.

Hmm, I use it sometimes before I change my linux distro, so I can't say never. 'Normal' use, about once per 2-3 months.

I use Alt-SysRq-F more often because I am lazy.

The sequence I learnt is "Raising elephants is so utterly boring".
Is there any preferred order (except b last of course)?

How often do you raise fat giraffes??

I have used it once in my entire life and I was surprised that I remembered that combination.

The only time I used it other than just because I felt like it was when I was trying hardy beta and there was a problem with using my intel 965 graphics chip (the X server would not start).

I did it 3 times today. I was trying to install Hardy on a machine but every time I log into the desktop it freezes, so I did it, better than a hard reset at least :)

Pretty much never... but let me ask:
