I came across this by mistake...While i don't pretend to understand Unix, this made me laugh:
UNIX offers several kinds hostilities:
denial of service (type "~/bin" for an example)
lack of compassion (type "?" into your favorite shell)
Byzantine failure (type "ld ~/.cshrc" for example)
corruption of language ("grep this file for...")
.. but then, you knew this already. So in a more humorous vein,
I present some tidbits from a local bboard. Excuse me if you've
seen this before.
Note that the '%' prompt indicates that the command should be issued from
the C shell, and the '$' prompt indicates the Bourne shell.
