How about this?

You want to erase NVRAM, so you issue a 'write erase'.   The router sees a
difference between the startup-config and running-config so it prompts you
to save your configuration.   In this context, it is going to save your
changes to NVRAM automagically.   This doesn't make sense.  However, you
have several options for storing the running-config elsewhere: TFTP, FTP,
Flash....Wouldn't it be nice if it prompted you to save to one of these
other locations?  It would make sense if it did that, but in the current
form, it certainly doesn't make sense.

When you want to get rid of the config on your router, you do a 'write
erase'

Then, it asks you:
Save configuration (YES/NO) and you are supposed to choose NO.

I don't understand the logic behind this. Can somebody explain to me why
it's a NO and not a YES?

thank you
