If you message me on any of the following, and I don't reply, please don't assume I received it.

I'm Occasionally Asked For My Comments (but not in the way you think ;-) )

Please feel free to use my pro-forma comments, most of which are derived from the defaults or the ones shared here rather than being written from scratch by me (some are even identical):

  • Import/access them in plaintext or jsonp (last updated 2 July 2013).

I do not claim original authorship of them, but if any of them turn out to be wrong or not very good, that is possibly my fault. :-)

comment How can I change the number of password entry attempts allowed by sudo?
For the future: while using visudo should prevent the creation of a bad sudoers file, if you do create one that is bad or (more likely, with visudo) valid but nonfunctional, the method detailed here with pkexec is usually sufficient to solve it, without even rebooting.
