Very cool story. I'd ++ if I had any left... One question, though. rm -rf? On my system it has to be rm -Rf
My own story is far less dramatic. I simply have problems with my video players. Mplayer, and Ogle (if I start it from the menu rather than from a terminal) never die cleanly. Sometimes, by the end of the day, I have 20+ processes running due to one or the other program. I whipped up a quick one-liner to seek and destroy them all.
I'm looking forward to hearing other people's stories.
