Unfortunately every time they want to send a new command they are forced to recompile the kernel, update several dependent RPMs, and execute multiple shell scripts.

As opposed to the whole space station firing itself into a trajectory down to mother Terra, just because one of the crew members opened an email with the subject "I Love you?"

The space shuttle Columbia broke up during reentry and the crew was killed. This thread doesn't seem very funny anymore so I am closing it.
