Interesting and frustrating problem, well 2 problems...

I seem to have somehow caused the '/' partition to become read-only

Today a thought occurred to me...

If I want to "kill -2 1" any one of my Linux boxen, I can. Linux will happily oblige, and I will have shot myself in the foot and upset both customers and management.
