Subject:   end-of-line character and sudo

A small correction:
The end-of-line-character in UNIX is ASCII 10 - not 8 as reported in the article. (man ascii)

And a recommendation:
The article suggested using 'sudo /bin/sh' in order to run a script as root. It would be better to use 'sudo' instead. You could do 'sudo name-of-script' and it would run as root. The use of 'sudo' for individual commands/scripts is generally recommended instead of running a shell as root. This limits exposure to problems and has the side benefit that everything you do is logged.
