More than once, through carelessness, and I'm sure I'm not alone, I have inadvertently shutdown or rebooted the wrong machine. I'm sure some of you know that all too familiar feeling when you see "Connection closed" instead of your desktop being rebooted.
I have a suggestion with respect to these commands. What if they could be modified to require the hostname of the machine as their first argument, otherwise, they refuse to bring the machine down? shutdown -h now becomes: shutdown example.com -h now and reboot becomes reboot example.com How hard would it to get the other *nix distributions to take up this up too?
