Are there any Linux nerds out there?
The reason I ask is that I found a PC or something on The Other Fella’s laptop.
I came down this morning and found that he had left it on all night and I could run all his programmes. One of them was a little program called Putty. I assumed it was something to do with holding Windows together, but it just displayed little things like ‘[root@server /] #’.
Now I haven’t a clue what it was, but I tried typing in various things like ‘who are you’, and it told me it was ‘root pts/0’ which was very helpful!
I tried typing ‘what are you’ but it started to get violent. It said ‘-bash: what: command not found’
Then it occurred to me to try some of those Linuxey things, so I tried CHMOD. That seemed to do something because streams of letters and words shot up the screen.
I played with CHMOD for a while, but it’s a bit boring.
I tried CHOWN.
That did strange things but that was boring too, and anyway, I had to go out to meet someone.
They were the only two things I had seen The Other Fella use, so does anyone know any interesting things I could try out?
I wonder if there are any games on it?
