Embarrassing Linux-related experiences
Everyone has embarrassing moments. I just had one that involved a command-line tool and I thought it would be fun to ask you guys to post all of your stupid, embarrassing moments.
I'll start with mine:
I was talking to this girl that I've been dating for a few weeks, and she is a Linux SysAdmin with about the same level of experience as me.
While talking to her, we start getting into more personal topics.
So at the same time, I am going through the LFS 7.5 manual.
So I say "You know what I really want you to do?"
and she says "What's that?"
At the same time I type into Facebook Messenger (I thought I was typing into the terminal):
At least she thought it was funny and replied with "mount: only root can do that"
Now tell me some of your stories
Things to remember :
- Use proper english
- Comment your code
- Keep background information and introductions to a minimum
