Old habits die hard :(
I find myself involuntarily entering "ctrl-D", not “exit”, when done with programmes.

On ‘sudo’ and friends:
 I’ve heard some people use ‘ssh root at localhost’, not su or sudo.

It requires credentials to be setup and of course you’ve turned off accepting a password for root in sshd.config :)

Any comments on this practice?
