Saw this video on the latest TED feed. This is very very cool what you can do with some quadcopters in order to make them athletic.
This was a funny post that only my nerd friends are even going to understand. Sorry you poor people on windows. None of this will work.
This was found here. http://www.tecmint.com/20-funny-commands-of-linux-or-linux-is-fun-in-terminal/
I will just list a few
Command: sl (Steam Locomotive)
You might be aware of command ‘ls‘ the list command and use it frequently to view the contents of a folder but because of miss-typing sometimes you would result in ‘sl‘, how about getting a little fun in terminal and not “command not found“.
root@tecmint:~# apt-get install sl (In Debian like OS) root@tecmint:~# yum -y install sl (In Red Hat like OS)
This command works even when you type ‘LS‘ and not ‘ls‘.
Command: rev (Reverse)
It reverse every string given to it, is not it funny.
root@tecmint:~# rev 123abc cba321 xuniL eb ot nrob born to be Linux
An ASCII cow in terminal that will say what ever you want.
root@tecmint:~# apt-get install cowsay (for Debian based OS) root@tecmint:~# yum install cowsay (for Red Hat based OS)
root@tecmint:~# cowsay I Love nix ____________ < I Love nix > ------------ \ ^__^ \ (oo)\_______ (__)\ )\/\ ||----w | || ||
How about pipelineing ‘fortune command‘, described above with cowsay?
root@tecmint:~# fortune | cowsay _________________________________________ / Q: How many Oregonians does it take to \ | screw in a light bulb? A: Three. One to | | screw in the light bulb and two to fend | | off all those | | | | Californians trying to share the | \ experience. / ----------------------------------------- \ ^__^ \ (oo)\_______ (__)\ )\/\ ||----w | || ||
Note: ‘|‘ is called pipeline instruction and it is used where the output of one command needs to be the input of another command. In the above example the output of ‘fortune‘ command acts as an input of ‘cowsay‘ command. This pipeline instruction is frequently used in scripting and programming.
