Allow me to add one ...

- "But my code contains ( my | a privilliged | root's ) password!"

Hmm! The only way to address this issue is to go ahead and post the code w/ the real password and the IP address of the server. HHOS! Storring any kind of uber sensitive data, like root's password, in a script is not only generally bad form, but a *H*U*G*E* security issue as well.

If one feels a necessity to do this, don't. There's usually a better way, like running it as a cron job or daemon or interactively. Ask the monks; read the holy texts. Some monk likely addressed such an issue in the past and devised an elegant yet functional solution ( like encasing the server in concrete and sinking it in the Atlantic ). Worst case, it will provide the Monastary an interesting query.

UPDATE: oh, yeah ... it is likely legally sticky to store privilliged info in your code ... due dilligence and all that ...

Apply yourself to new problems without preparation, develop confidence in your ability to to meet situations as they arrise.
