( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Years ago, I was working in the system administration department of some company where another system administrator had gone a bit overboard with the various monitor scripts he had installed. Not only would the sysadmin be paged and emailled if there was a problem, but also his workstation (in case of a server problem), or the workstation of a developer (in case of a problem with his/her computer) would speak. I wasn't so pleased as his desk was right behind mine. (I made it a habit to remotely turn down his volume if his computer would speak while he was away of his desk). And the developers often got a scare if their swap-space/tmp dir filled up (this was Solaris), because then their workstation would vocally complain. Once I ran an at job - sceduled to run while I was out of the office - that remotely filled up everybody's /tmp directory to slightly over treshold that triggered the spoken warning. Steathely (open file, unlink file, write file, wait for warning, closely). Too bad I wasn't there to see the faces of the developers amid 100 talking workstations. (We had cubicles - with low walls).

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
