    I read "ran it" as "rant it" at first.

    Early in my programming days, I thought I would be clever and set up an alias em=emacs.

    Now, I neglected to notice the fact that the "e" and "r" keys are adjacent, and could be errantly transposed were one in a hurry with one's left hand was slightly off the home key.

    That fact was brought to my attention one day when I intended to type "em *.c" but instead typed "rm *.c"

    Revision control saved me, but I never considered that short-lived alias again.
