Shocker: Linux computer rebooted

Author: JT Smith

More humor from Segfault: Joel Kurtz, sysadmin for UK-based ISP Daemon Internet, today announced a reboot of one of the company's largest webservers. "It just kinda happened," said Kurtz. When asked why the reboot took place, Kurtz became cagey. He later said "You know. You go to a friends' and you type 'rm -rf /' on their computer and hang your finger over the return key?"
The Linux-based webserver returned to normal operation within 5 minutes, a spokesperson for Daemon Internet stated.
