Doh! <slaps head>

Of course I know that, Darryl, and my apologies to Kastos.

This embarrassing little instinct "bites me" in the "arse" *every
single time*! Here's how it goes:

a) I mount the filesystem
b) I fsck (or variant) it
c) I see the following:

WARNING!!! Running _<fsck et al>_ on a mounted filesystem may cause
SEVERE filesystem damage.

Do you really want to continue (y/n)?

d) I slap my head in a "Doh!" moment and type "n" for "no".
e) I umount the filesystem
f) I proceed, vowing to never do that again.
g) lather, rinse, repeat
