How-to of The Day

I don’t have a lot of time, but I’m in a generous mood and want to help all the returds out there try to climb out of whatever intellectual mire their lives inhabit.

Here’s a quick and easy command for you to do.

Open a terminal emulator.

Either become root or use sudo with the follow command

So either type

su and then enter, and type in your root password when asked, then type

shutdown -h now , and immediately follow that with enter.

If you’re using sudo it would be,

sudo shutdown -h now, followed by hitting enter, then entering your user password and hitting enter again.

Whatever you do! Do not, and I repeat, DO NOT!!!! Do anything with your computer until you read my next how-to that I’ll post shortly. It’s far too dangerous to, trust me!

Hope that helps, returds…..

Keep your stick on the ice…
