No! Please don’t do it!

There are some highly entertaining examples on the net of command line program output, but it’s great when you’re doing some system maintenance in Linux on your own machine and a gem unexpectedly crops up:

:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/dovecot restart
[sudo] password:
* Restarting IMAP/POP3 mail server dovecot
Warning: Last died with error (see error log for more information): Time just moved backwards by 11 seconds. This might cause a lot of problems, so I'll just kill myself now. http://wiki.dovecot.org/TimeMovedBackwards

NO! Please, it’s not worth it! :)
