Whoops! Hotel room menu system fscked

A few days ago I had to be in London for business so I stayed at the Gatwick Airport Sofitel. Nice hotel, and right inside the terminal... very convenient. When I got to my room the TV was switched with a short ad looping. It was inviting me to press the INFO button on the remote for the hotel menu.

There was no INFO button, but there was a button called MENU. I pressed that button... oops:



Looks like the hotel menu system was running RedHat Linux and the disk was fscked. (Sorry about the poor quality, the camera in my Motorola RAZR sucks). You can just make out the hda2 is screwed.

The last part says that it was dropping into a shell. Unfortunately, there was no way that I could type anything :-(
