Re: failure to think it through

Aha. Your self-training should include thinking through how to perform shutdown blind, using just relevant keystrokes. Login/unlock sequence, "get me into a shell", and shutdown itself. In the case of a server, the absence of any GUI simplifies things.

Now where can I find a keyboard for this server? Damn, no USB?
