[ Thanks to slonkak for this link.
"I walked over to a student's computer to see what
error he was receiving and then proceeded back to my computer. I
told them to skip taht part and I would quickly figure it out and
tell them what file they needed to edit. Fat chance. I spent about
5 minutes trying to figure out how to add another TTY all while
talking them through what I was doing: restarting init, checking
the log, cross-referencing errors on the Internet, etc. I'm not the
type of professor who will waste the students' time (I know I hated
that when I took classes), so I gave them some options. Either they
could forget about this part of the assignment and not lose any
points, or they could figure out how to add tty8 before the final
exam and earn extra credit."
