comment Recommendations or advice for shared computer control
@Romandas: I'm not quite sure what you mean. If DeepFreeze is enabled, then it prevents you from overwriting it simply with a new image. We use imaging software for initial installations, but if we go with DeepFreeze, that will change what we can do after that.

I don't think it belongs on SU if the goal is to use the regular OS X as a server - which is what it sounds like.

comment How can I specify a shell pattern that excludes certain files?
Use it with echo first is always good advice, but I suppose I worry a lot about that one time when you're going too quickly and forget echo. **/ makes me nervous for destructive commands.

@Kyle: facepalm. I'm an idiot and clearly am not thinking very quickly. Thanks, that was it.

Um, yes, that doesn't seem like a good idea at all.

Is that recursive? When I run a similar command with ls it appears to be. If so, um, be very careful.
