    When things like HTTPD go down I get this sent to my email, as I'm sure the rest of you do!

    httpd failed @ Tue Sep 26 21:34:40 2006. A restart was attempted automagicly.

    Is this a spelling error? I have noticed this for every server I have ever used! Shouldn't it be automatically?:eek:

    adv : Something that happens automatically with no user input or interaction.

    automagically: /aw?toh?maj?i?klee/, adv.
    Automatically, but in a way that, for some reason (typically because it is too complicated, or too ugly, or perhaps even too trivial), the speaker doesn't feel like explaining to you. See magic. “The C-INTERCAL compiler generates C, then automagically invokes cc(1) to produce an executable.”

    This term is quite old, going back at least to the mid-70s in jargon and probably much earlier. The word ‘automagic’ occurred in advertising (for a shirt-ironing gadget) as far back as the late 1940s.
