It’s fortune Friday

It’s fortune(6) Friday… what my server said when I logged in on the console today:

Welcome to NetBSD!

WARNING!!!
This machine is subject to breakdowns during periods of critical need.

A special circuit in the machine called “critical detector” senses the operator’s emotional state in terms of how desperate he/she is to use the machine.  The “critical detector” then creates a malfunction proportional to the desperation of the operator.  Threatening the machine with violence only aggravates the situation.  Likewise, attempts to use another machine may cause it to malfunction.  They belong to the same union.  Keep cool and say nice things to the machine.  Nothing else seems to work.

Thanks for warning me!
