Things look quiet here. But I've been doing a lot of blogging at dan.langille.org because I prefer WordPress now. Not all my posts there are FreeBSD related. I am in the midst of migrating The FreeBSD Diary over to WordPress (and you can read about that here). Once the migration is completed, I'll move the FreeBSD posts into the new FreeBSD Diary website.

From time to time, I've had trouble removing a symbolic link.  I'd get this:
# rm nz.freebsd.org.old
rm: nz.freebsd.org.old/: is a directory

I was told to use the full path.  Which I did.  And it worked:

# rm /www/nz.freebsd.org.old

I'm also told that this should also work:

# rm ./nz.freebsd.org.old

Go figure.
