Apologies if you’ve already seen this (it’s 2 weeks old) but it made me laugh out loud today so I thought I’d share it. Warning: strong language and offensive to a certain brand you may have an attachment to if you’re the inexplicably loyal type. To fanboys: it’s not talking about the PS3, or indeed any real product. It’s just comedy. Put down the knife. 😉
A small bit of musing while I wait for another back-up to run… Reinstalling a server from scratch sucks. Obviously. Not being able to use direct dumps of the old system itself because of concerns of how far a malicious attack got, and how long ago (even though we’re running SELinux) means that everything has to be constructed afresh. How much fun I’m having. But if there’s one silver lining here, it’s that at least Linux stores every shred of its configuration in a simple, plain text format, and in one dedicated subtree of the file-system.
