    easter egg in mac os x tiger

    just open a terminal within tiger and


    mac:~ mac$ say -v Good oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo


    mac:~ mac$ say -v Bad oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    works with other letters as well :cool:

    you can also use letter combinations like aaaalllllooooo or sth like that... :)

    I don't get it. Is the printing of the o's the easter egg?

    From looking around online it looks like it will just speak whatever text you type which is what the command is supposed to do...

    no just type the Os in the same line on your terminal (simply do apple-key c + apple-key v) and don't forget to turn on sound ;)

    Correct. And by adding the -v you are can specify a voice.

    Try these two:
    say -v Vicki hello
    say -v Fred hello

    There are many more Voices too. This is no easter egg, it's just another features of OS X.

    never mind wether it's an easter egg or not...with good you get the melody of land of hope and glory and with bad the infamous r.i.p. melody
