Once in a while you come across something that spontaneously triggers a pleasantly-surprised “hmmmm!”.

This is one of those things that triggered it right away 🙂 Java apps/jvm’s should be polling that sucker franticly 😉

Panic at the disco!

Linux kernels are brave warriors, standing up against lots of bad hardware and rootkits.

But even the mightiest warrior has a soft spot. The Linux kernel in particular is just terrified of the letter ‘c’.

Meaning you can force a kernel to panic by just doing the following:

# echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger

Great for testing, not recommended in production 😉
