Bug alert. Stay safe. How to Crash Systemd in One Tweet. The following command, when run as any user, will crash systemd:

+TheTLATER​ Least mechanism is definitely a good thing to point out.

I mainly like to make sure people are being completely honest with themselves.

I can't help but wonder if he recycled his "someone is wrong on the internet" drawing.

Never mind, back then it was a desktop pc with a slide out keyboard.

+Boris Krumov no, it would not.
Escaping exist, so that the shell doesn't interpret a character. But in this case, the shell has no problems - it's the program (rm) which has “issues”.

I modify my ~/.ssh/config all of the time. Another neat tip, if you want to use ssh-agent, some people use ssh-agent bash ... I like to use ssh-agent screen or ssh-agent tmux and all of the child terms adopt the environment variables. When you're done, and no longer need cached keys, logout of all screen/tmux sessions. Or use the -t option to timeout the lifetime after a short while... don't leave cached keys sitting around.

Well, the warning is exactly about the impossibility of optimization, if you noticed...

Nevertheless, I love when I find weird warnings, nonsense "notes to self" and jokes inside other people's source code almost awalys), but nothings make me laugh harder than this (i)logic statement:

If (true) {
// whatever code, as it will
// be executed anyway!
}

Just imagine a bunch of those, deep embedded into functions and loops, just there to make the logic harder to be understood...

I am still not sure whether it's bug or feature of the system.

Lol... And my personal favorite. "Windows error reporting has stopped working... Windows error reporting is checking for a solution to the problem." That'll work out windows... You just keep trying
