There's an interesting thread on the CentOS mailing list on
sys admin horror stories. Amusing read.
I once had a vendor sys admin run an "rm -rf ./project/ subdir" and
delete the entire ./project folder and 2 months of live data. Same
vendor had also not noticed that automated backups had failed for
many weeks and we were running without any backup for a long
time. A penalty of Rs 2 lakhs was enforced, all because of one
extra space in the command.
