Once we got a formal complaint from the janitorial staff because one worker had read a message on a server console (back when they were paper) about a child process being aborted.

Your lucky it did not say "Child processes aborted and KILLED by user donmr".
They might have called the homicide team on you.

Haha, that's awesome!

10 years ago I ran a web hosting business; I once got a *very* irate call from a *very* Christian woman, accusing me of being some sort of devil worshiper...

Once I got her calmed down a bit, I finally figured out what had happened: Apparently she had tried to send an email to someone and it bounced, so she got a message from the mailer-daemon!

But it wasn't just the fact that she got an email from a "demon" that upset her; you see, I ran all FreeBSD servers, so at the bottom of the bounce message was a little ASCII art picture of the FreeBSD mascot, horns, pitchfork and all!

She thought we had been embedding Satanic imagery into all her emails or something. She ended up moving over to a "Christian Web Hosting Company" and paying about 3x as much. That company also used FreeBSD servers!

Edit:  Funny thing is she used a Mac! She would have really blown a gasket if she realized her email was being sent by Darwin! (Plus Hexley, the Darwin mascot is a platypus with horns and a pitchfork!)

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic; e.g., Cheez Whiz, Hot Dogs and RF.

Yeah, the FreeBSD daemon mascot is kind of unrealistically cute.
It should look more like:


Maybe we can change the "master/slave" terminology to "sorcerer/thrall"

It could be pimps and hoes for all I care as long as the writer is clear about which is the master.

So would the attention signal sent from the controller then be a 'bitch slap', and an interrupt request from the peripheral be a 'pimp slap'?

Or we can maybe leave it as master/slave.
Whoever is complaining: You are not a slave. Your family or friens are not slaves. You never met a slave in your entire life, and you probably never will. Who are you protecting?
Nobody ever read a technical paper, and said: What is this slavery thing? BTW, the translation into my language is master/servant.

We should shut down this slavery. All buses must be Multi-Master only by 2018! [emoji25]

Whats wrong with "Big Beautiful Roses Occupy Your Garden But Violets Grow Wild"...  :o
