  • revere them
  • consider them our future

      Almost all (if not all) the options can be turned to passive :)

    Considering the current state of the planet I would question the use of the word "intelligent" here. Some people believe that long-living beneficial plants like trees are far more intelligent than us reckless humans. I mean, when did you last see a tree driving to the supermarket to buy food?

    Given the current way politics and "free" economy works, you should add the option "take all their valuables and send them to prison for not paying their income tax"

    .

[davido]: yeah, umount -f isn't powerful enough.
[tye]: probably something in the init subsystem that does the mounting that you could disable and reboot.
davido needs to close laptop to board flight home from yapc.
[davido]: I'll look into it in a few hours probably.
[davido]: when i do get to that point I think I'll do it in a vm snapshot just in case. :)
[oiskuu]: tye, you were right: loginuid/sessionid are part of task struct if compiled with AUDITSYSCALL. I have some doubts if you should actually depend on that feature.
[Corion]: oiskuu: Depends on what you want to do with that information
[tye]: I'm not depending on that feature. But I could in this environment. I'm using getlogin(). shrug
[Corion]: For benign logging (which user started this DB instance), it's OK
[tye]: We use auditd for security monitoring. So we can rely on auditing being enabled. I'm not sure who would want to not be able to audit. Maybe some VM inside another system with audit?
