Ah.. Finally the exact answer I was after, reset just seemed like too
much of a big stick approach. (although it worked!)

   gordon:~$ echo ^N

   ±⎺⎼␍⎺┼:·$ ␊␌␤⎺ ^O


Nothing like more random shell trivia to stuff into my brain. I shall
now use this as my own personal "l33t 5cr1pt k1dd13 hax0r" mode to
impress those watching over my shoulder......

"Ah the RAID controller is not responding, I'll just drop into machine
mode and fix it"

   $ echo ^V^N

"ah, yes, see the sectors on the blocks of the head doovers are out of
phase, see those lines? I'll just fix it with this hammer..."
