Ha, oh yes!
There was the time in 1999 when I was head sysadmin at a then-famous
Linux company. My staff saw me, head-down, clickety-clickety, then
I stop, mutter an imprecation of theology and/or biology, and got up and
grabbed the keys to the server room. Six heads popped up, before I
could reach the door:
Them: "What'd ya do?"
Me: "It's kind of embarrassing."
Them: "_What'd_ ya do?"
Me: "Well, I rolled out a change on that database host, and had
to restart networking."
Me: "I forgot I wasn't at console, typed /etc/init.d/networking stop,
and didn't get a new shell prompt, for some strange reason."
But I got to taunt them every time they updated a DNS zonefile and
forgot to increment the S/N.
