The bane of every system administrator. Nothing is more annoying than to be trying to get a system back up when someone comes into your office and bitches, "The computer is down." Here are some things that can result in bitching users:

  • Unplugging the wrong power cable in a server cluster
  • Hacking on live code
  • Storing your entire MP3 collection on user disks
  • Reducing disk quotas
  • Bringing a system down for maintanence you scheduled and announced a week ago

Simply having your office door open is a magnet for bitching users. You have been warned...
