What ever happened to Tandem and NonStop OS 1989
This is why pagers and mobile phones can have email sent to them.
There are, of course, legitamate uses for such, though. I was working on a way to monitor the state of an application that was hanging. We (production support) didn't have a good handle on what was leading up to the deadlocks. I had what turned out to be a clever insight, but wasn't sure of that yet. I needed to be able to watch a bunch of things right at the start, and so had made the watchdog script page me. I left for an extended weekend, and neglected to turn it off. I had car troubles, and was on the phone to my boss, to tell him I was likely to be a day late getting back. My pager went off, and it was my watchdog. I had my boss tell my cow orkers what I wanted them to look at. He didn't tell them that I'd asked for it. I called one of the orkers up later that afternoon, to see if we saw what I thought. We didn't, but we did find enough clues to look elsewhere on the next occurance.

killall -KILL firefox Seriously; the degradation happens pretty gracefully as it swaps more and more. Then, if you don't address the issue it will go into "swapping bouts" once every 15...
