Since we last checked in, Pumpkin Man’s cybernetic brains developed the ability to start up automatically and self-update. Also, there’s a new control interface for operating all eight relays. And perhaps most importantly, the team working on his physical form have made great strides. He now stands triumphantly!
I erased all of my cronjobs by accident due to a simple typo.
When working with cron jobs, the command
crontab -e is used to edit your
crontab. This command is one letter off from
crontab -r, which erases your
cron jobs without any confirmation prompt. On a QWERTY keyboard,
r keys are adjacent, which makes it especially easy to type the
wrong one by accident. I accidentally typed the wrong thing, and
*poof*, my cronjobs disappeared.
