Curiosidades en fortune

games-misc/fortune-mod (nombre oficial en Gentoo) es un paquete desde tiempos UNIX que nos muestra un mensaje al azar (he ahí su nombre, como si fuera una galleta de la fortuna). Hace tiempo puse un pequeño tip de como hacer que nos mostrara un mensaje cada ves que abriéramos la consola.

Pues bien hoy abri una consola y literalmente me cague del susto porque el fortune fue muy grande, aunque despues lo vi y es bastante divertido (en ingles porque me da hueva descargar paquetes de español), el mensaje fue el ABC de unix que habia visto hace años pero no recordaba, se los copio para compartir mi admiración por estos sistemas.

A is for awk, which runs like a snail, and
B is for biff, which reads all your mail.
C is for cc, as hackers recall, while
D is for dd, the command that does all.
E is for emacs, which rebinds your keys, and
F is for fsck, which rebuilds your trees.
G is for grep, a clever detective, while
H is for halt, which may seem defective.
I is for indent, which rarely amuses, and
J is for join, which nobody uses.
K is for kill, which makes you the boss, while
L is for lex, which is missing from DOS.
M is for more, from which less was begot, and
N is for nice, which it really is not.
O is for od, which prints out things nice, while
P is for passwd, which reads in strings twice.
Q is for quota, a Berkeley-type fable, and
R is for ranlib, for sorting ar table.
S is for spell, which attempts to belittle, while
T is for true, which does very little.
U is for uniq, which is used after sort, and
V is for vi, which is hard to abort.
W is for whoami, which tells you your name, while
X is, well, X, of dubious fame.
Y is for yes, which makes an impression, and
Z is for zcat, which handles compression.
