Process fun

[ #16289 ]

So I really screwed up and was trying to figure out which processes to kill. As it turns out, the exact combination of switches that I passed to ps has started a bizarre trend with some programmers here who appreciated the humor inherent in my trying to recover from a disaster.

ps awfux | grep ovid
