Commands that output funny stuff

Postby MadTux » Thu Jan 09, 2014 5:46 pm

I just found this: http://www.gnu.org/fun/jokes/unix.errors.html :lol:

Does anyone know any other funny commands (that are either valid or output funny things)? (Yes, I know, silly thread :roll: )

Not quite the same but try editing the Default line in your sudoers file to
Code: Select all
Defaults        env_reset,insults,timestamp_timeout=5
and note what happens in terminal if you use an incorrect password for a sudo command. Note the timestamp part is nothing to do with this so you can omit that part; it's just my preference for sudo timeout on my system; it's the word insults that counts.
