That joke doesn't get any funnier by repeating it every time a new
"favourite command" thread comes up. Just sayin'. Also if you want to
know things you should ask.
PS: "mandos" is cool. This lets you do (nearly) full-disk encryption
on headless servers without requiring you to type in the passphrase
when you boot the machine. Instead, the machine gets its passphrase
from the network. This sounds crazy but it is useful -- it protects
against the threat of data being accessible when the server is stolen
and booted on a foreign network, but allows you to reboot servers
without the hassle of hooking up a monitor and keyboard.
