If it's cool to you then it is CUFP. That's just the way art is. Some like it, some don't.

Why did you choose to fork instead of maybe trying to nice down his processes as low as possible? You could even add that to his .profile or add an if to the system wide profile. Instead of forking you could gobble up as much memory as possible then release it on his logout? Or finding their ip address and flooding it with useless udp packets? I ask because slowing the entire machine down would seem to cause you problems as well as him...

Has it ever gotten out of control and overrun your machine? Just wondering :-) Hope your friend doesn't read perlmonks.

Cheers

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
