in thread When writing code for end users, what operator error surprises you the most?

Or if you prefer, there is another story along these lines.

In national parks such as Yellowstone, the campers use bear proof containers to keep their food in, and designers trying to make better ones.

Their effors are frustrated by the fact that some of the smarter bears have more intelegence than the dumber campers.

[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
