"So, now it's gone. But, and this is the only thing
that's saving us a whole lot of headache, the file is still open in
memory since we still have a "tail -f" job running in the

open for our file FILE. Of course, we can't refer to it by that
name anymore. One interesting thing to note about an inode is that
it contains virtually all the information you ever wanted to know
about your file... except it's name!"
