It's funny.  Laugh.

netbuzz writes "Some say they’re “hilarious,” actually, as this collection of Unix admin tools written by Brendan Gregg is drawing generally rave reviews in social-media circles. The one getting the most laughs is called “maybe.” Gregg explains: “This was back in the days when sysadmins would lock user accounts for being ‘naughty,’ and then unlock them sometime later when they thought the user had learned their lesson. I'm not sure there is an analogue today, since we are so dependent on computing. It'd be like blocking an employee from the Internet for a few days for running bittorrent; I guess they'd learn their lesson, but they'd probably be unable to do their job, too.” (There’s also an unrelated bonus video – viewed almost 800,000 times on YouTube — of Gregg yelling at disk drives.”)"
