I guess I’m read for bed. Instead of
grep -rin foo I just typed
rm -rf foo. What the heck, brain!? O_o Luckily, I just caught it before hitting Enter.
@firstname.lastname@example.org I will occasionally get some command (or even certain arguments for a command) in muscle memory and type it by accident instead of the one I want. It hasn’t been disastrous yet, but it has cost me some time.
I also find that I compulsively type ‘ls’ whenever I’m in a terminal, even if I don’t need it. It’s strange.
@email@example.com I do the
ls thing regularly. I even do it after I’ve already
lsed the directory but have run some other command afterwards. I tend to think of it like the LOOK command in text adventures.
@firstname.lastname@example.org I’m glad it’s not just me.
