Just Another Genome Hacker,

Sadly, my most voted-up answer on Stackoverflow (312 votes) belonged to a question that later got deleted. The question came from a girl that asked for something cute that she could put on the icing of a birthday cake for her programmer boyfriend.

I suggested that, if her boyfriend is somewhat mathematically inclined, she write the following:

    sin(t) √|cos(t)|
r = __________________  - 2 sin(t) + 2
    sin(t) + 7/5

If he doesn't get it at first, she could tease him with saying that it is obvious that he should take the polar plot of it. If he still doesn't get it, she should tell him to enter it in WolframAlpha, that should yield the result:

comment “Lock” one specific file so that I nor root no longer have access to it any more
I don't think removing myself from the /etc/sudoers file is an ideal solution: I still want to be able to perform other system tasks like installing software, etc. I just don't want to be able to change /etc/hosts any more unless an outside party grants me access to that file. Any solution where I can add myself back to the admin group defeats the point, because I will probably end up doing that before the exams end. Thanks.

I didn't know about the chattr command, but the initial problem remains: I want to protect me from myself. If I know there is a way to unlock/restore the file before the exams, I probably will. Therefore I am still looking for a solution where only a third party can grant me access to that file. Thanks.

I will accept this as the correct answer for this specific case, but the question "what is the best option to choose in general?" remains.
