11.8 Best of the Net

System administrators have a thankless job. There are certain questions, usually quite simple ones, that they are asked over and over again. And sometimes, in a creative mood, they come up with a clever way to help their users. When the rest of us find out about their ingenuity, we can only sit back, smile admiringly, and wish we had thought of it ourselves. Here is one such case, where a system administrator found a way to communicate the solution to the sometimes perplexing puzzle of how to end an nslookup session:

% nslookup
Default Server:  envy.ugcs.caltech.edu

> quit
Server:  envy.ugcs.caltech.edu

Name:    ugcs.caltech.edu
Aliases:  quit.ugcs.caltech.edu

> exit
