Maybe I could boot from a USB?

Gonna need to prepare one if I end up nuking and paving anyway, so I guess I'll start that at least.

Only thing I can think of to do is to pull the hard drive and mount it to another computer to check... Fstab?... Maybe?

Anyway that's gonna be a no from me at the moment.

To be continued.

man sulogin:

"If the root account is locked and --force is specified, no password is required."

How do that?

So I turned on my server for the first time in a long time, and I'm getting this.

Last time I was working on it I was trying to upgrade to Debian stretch.

Went for lunch in Mexico. Proceeded to say, "hai," instead of "sí".
Not once. Not twice. Three times.

My wires are crossed and my cheeks are red....

A sample:

Server: ¿Todos bien?
Me: Hai! Bien, gracias!


Me, sweating: “shitgibbon”

Them: “...ok, that’s not even close to how you pronounce Worcestershire”
