The first panettone was medium-sized, good for a few days of breakfast for two of us. The second panettone was very large and fluffy, good for an extended family at Christmas with breakfast, dessert, and snacks. The last ten panettoni were single-size portions, on sale for 59 pence each in the after-Christmas grocery store sell-off, but not nearly as good as the first two.

  • You forget that Macs don't have root enabled by default, so su isn't going to get you anywhere.

  • Suspend is really not the same thing as kill.
