Friday Stickies

When you hear the night’s last flush,
Then my dear it’s time to hush.
One or two, either number
Says to you peaceful slumber.
Feel the drench from the broken pipe.
Ooh that stench it’s mighty ripe.
So swat the flies,
Close your eyes,
Drift off to my stinky lullaby.
– Roger the Alligator (voiced by Richard Kind), Roger Dodger

After wielding my +2 kill command, I cleaned out about 100 deadlocked processes that were waiting on IO time which all woke up after I killed the USB storage daemon.  Now my process tree looks a bit more sane:
