*nix joke: I had a little peek in the homedir of a colleague and discovered his .setprompt file was writable for anyone. That file was sourced at each prompt. Knowing he's not too sensitive about this kind of joke, I changed his prompt string slightly.

(I probably could have granted myself full control of his account... but that would be quite a bit over the top, not to mention risky.)

There was some other foolishness on the forum last night, about 05:30 UT if I recall correctly. Unfortunately, my reply seemed to break something, and I kept getting a message from the snakes afterwards when I tried to reach the forum, saying something about upgrading security software. Did anyone else see it?

Of course! The snake ate my perfectly good message, too. Had to retype it all again, later. Damn!

...the snake replied, "yes, but you knew I was a snake when you picked me up." Snakes not to be trusted!
