Dreaming in console...

I have had a major battle the last couple of days figuring out getting some programs, dependencies, libraries to work.
As a result, tonight I have dreamed... in console. In Konsole, to be exact. You know the kind of puzzle dreams, where you keep dreaming "if only I get this last thing right, everything will be sorted out". I had that tonight, with installing previously unknown compilers and libraries in every conceivable folder...
So now, I just got up, even if it is early Sunday morning.
Am trying to $ tar xvf my_brain.tar.gz
Gotta stop dreaming in root. You never know what the wiring might do.

Dreaming in root is okay if you're not connected to any networks(including the internet). The government sometimes beams signals into your mind. You don't want them to have root access. Wrapping some tin foil around your head, or sleeping in a chickenwire cage can negate the effect.

Just make sure you know what you're doing, and review every command about thirtyfour times chanting it forward and backwards before submitting it.

I have no doubt that this professional advice will come in handy. Perhaps vodka is the answer - then I seem to receive everything encrypted.
