Not to get off topic too far, but this reminds me of a funny situation 
back in college.  Someone had managed to create an undeletable file, 
and even the superusers could not delete it.  I think it had a single 
space character as the filename and the Unix of the day didn't let you 
surround a filename with quotes (this was close to 20 years ago).  So 
the file lived on eternally, lol.

Another funny story from college:  One day the sysop asked me for my 
password.  I replied sharply with what sounded to him like "bite me", 
an obvious rude remark.  He said "No, really, I need it to fix some 
stuff."  I replied by spelling out the password:  "That's the password: 
  byteme".   Everyone had a great laugh.
