2004, I tried to kill before...
And 1989 was the magic ticket. Killed it and the windows disappeared
and 2004 and 21775 disappeared.
So now I have to add this to my tricks list for the next time....
For situations like that, I rather like the "killall" command. Instead
of me having to find all the Firefox, for example, instances that are
jamming, and all their process ids, then issue commands per id (usually
the smallest id takes the lot out, but not always). I can issue
"killall firefox" a few times, until it dies and I see a "no process
found" response (no more of them to kill). Though usually once is
enough. It also takes a "-9" parameter, for the times that you need a
"when I say 'woh' I mean 'woh'!" command.
