A man appears to have deleted his entire company with one mistaken piece of code.
By accidentally telling his computer to delete everything in his servers, hosting provider Marco Marsala has seemingly removed all trace of his company and the websites that he looks after for his customers.
I’m not sure when, I just know that at some point this bad code will come in handy, and wow! That’s some powerful code!
The problem command was "rm -rf": a basic piece of code that will delete everything it is told to. The “rm” tells the computer to remove; the r deletes everything within a given directory; and the f stands for “force”, telling the computer to ignore the usual warnings that come when deleting files.
That’s right, one line of code and it’s like it never happened.
It seems an extreme measure, butt at some point it may be our best option for removing all traces of the Obama years.
Although unlike the bad code, I don’t think the witch’s spell is guaranteed. So if you want to ensure that all trace of what will otherwise be noted in history books as “the dark years of the Obama period” is erased, we’re going to need to employ “the code.” Keep it handy.
And you’re welcome.
