Wrong keyboard or why I hate to be not at home

Posted 01-07-2010 at 04:17 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Happy New Year, my dear friends, LQ community!

Wish you have many roots, virtual and real as well)
And don't forget to run as root yourself! ;)
Then you will see no "permission denied" anymore, you will discover this world is free and there is nothing impossible!
Believe me, it is!
su FTW! :)
Have a great party and have a nice time in 2010!

Go, hackers, go!!!
