comment .bashrc shebang line reports command not found
Some software use the UTF8 encoding of U+FEFF (the BOM) as a sign that a file is encoded as UTF-8 rather than something else, say windows-1252

comment I used sudo halt and now can't access my server to restart!
@coteyr: Maybe a DBMS does but KDE, Gnome and most other systems should have no outstanding I/O that they need to do if the system has been idle for the previous minute otherwise they're built broken. (I fail to see why KDE should be writing anything to a permanent file unless I change some setting). If they've written and flushed and the computer has been idle for a minute then the OS will have synced it all to disk.

When I run sudo halt on my Ubuntu computer, it shuts down immediately without asking questions. It is my preferred way of shutting down the machine because it doesn't ask annoying questions or wait a minute. It still waits (pointlessly in my opinion) for processes to die but one day I'll fix that!
