Oops :)

I just killed a 2650 - thankfully it wasn't being used in a live 
environment (I'd normally go to the BIOS but was feeling lazy today).. 
I'm just curious as to why what I typed had the effect that it did..

And at this point the machine dropped off the network - whoops :)

Have I done something really stupid and killed the existing two 
containers as a result of this?

Cheers,
