With this episode, we kick off our fifth season, season 4! (Because you always, always count from 0.)

Just the Tip

  • Paden talks about rm.
    • Please be sure to see the errata! rm -rf /* will absolutely toast your install, I think Paden was talking about rm -rf /.


Starts at 14m37s.

I was drinking nothing. Paden was drinking Glenmorangie Original. Jthan was drinking Miller Lite.

15 Clams

In this segment, Jthan shares with you a little slice of life. The title is a reference to this video. (2m16s in)

Starts at 55m51s.

One of your clams is Jthan doing a dramatic, high-tension reading of top.


  • One of our listeners (thanks, Nosbig!) alerted to us that just a couple days after this episode dropped, some flaws were discovered in KeePass (and other password managers). It’s still fairly safe, but make sure you read the discovery in full!
  • Paden recommends this podcast as an alternative to our now-defunct News segment.
  • I said “password-hyphen-store.org” – but there’s no hyphen in the domain. Oops!
  • Linode does indeed have 2FA for their manager login, but it has to be configured from the “classic”/“legacy” manager login.
  • There are indeed RFCs for RFCs:
  • Correction: rm -rf /* does indeed still work (and rm -rf / indeed does not):
[root@test ~]# rm -rf /
rm: it is dangerous to operate recursively on '/'
rm: use --no-preserve-root to override this failsafe
[root@test ~]# rm -rf /*
