I was working in Gitlab, late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For the RAM used in a tab, began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise

It made it crash, Slack made the browser crash
That browser crash, it caused a keyboard smash
Slack made it crash, it made me lose my cache
It made it crash, Slack made the browser crash

From my infrastructure in the US-east
To the master bedroom where my bedtime ceased
The DDoS came from some IoT nodes
And gave my front-end some error codes

They made it crash, they made the website crash
The website crash, it was production SaaS
They made it crash, I logged on in a flash
They made it crash, they made the website crash

Out from his basement, greybeard's voice did ring
Seems he was troubled by just one thing
Checked his shell PID, and shook his fist
and said: "Whatever happened to my well-configured zsh?"

It's now just bash, the default shell is bash
The default bash, on Debian it's dash
It's now just bash, it'll catch on in a flash
It's now just bash, the default shell is bash

@kyle

I've learned as much as possible to write my shell scripts to invoke plain old sh, so they don't do something unexpected if someone runs them in a different shell.

@kyle aren't dash and bash basically the same thing?

maybe throw them all out.. tho i did just discover ctrl-r in bash and that is awesome. I suppose if I could somehow forget about ms-dos perhaps I could appreciate this the way todays "youth" do.

at least it's not zsh.
