Preparation is the key

I have a shiney laptop, and I was planning on showing off a 64bit operating system running on it for my last dtrace presentation, so making sure I had the latest and greatest AMD64 bits, I started to prepare a few scripts that would allow me to show off what dtrace can do. I fired up one of my most complicated examples and bang my laptop rebooted.
It's just as well this was in my pre-flight test mode and not in front of everyone, because heaven knows, you don't need to have it all go horribly wrong in front of everyone.
As a preparation freak, I of course have the latest clean build of Solaris on an alternate boot environment on the laptop, so I quickly swapped unstable for stable to ensure that the demo went without a hitch.
Live upgrade, yet another reason why Solaris rules!
