    So I've been playing with Terminal a lot lately, i now these are old Commands but there so fun.
    Just thought id share them with you incase you get bored. Again these Commands are very old and i suppose pretty much useless. Enjoi

    -Open Terminal
    -type "emacs" (without speech marks)
    -pres "esc" and "x" together
    -then type one of these commands ...
    5x5
    blackbox
    decipher
    pick up sho
    gomoku
    hanoi
    mpuz
    pong
    snake
    solitaire
    tetris

    Type them exactly as i wrote them, no CAPS
    Doesn't take a genius to figue out what they are so spare the explanation.

    Oh, Also. i find this very entreating too
    -Open Terminal
    type "say" and then anything you want, turn you volume up and enjoi.

    ----------

    I forget to add. You can also get terminal to wish you a Happy Birthday.
    Again pretty useless but fun to watch for the 1st time

    -open terminal
    -type "emacs"
    -Press enter
    -press "esc" and "x" together
    -type "animate"
    -press enter
    -type your name or anything your heart desires

    iTunes hidden Dock setting

    So theres a nice little tweak for iTunes app, that can be activated from Terminal. this will allow a small speech bubble like node to pop up on the dock when itunes plays a song. I personally love this little tweak. give it a shot


    -First, quit iTunes
    -open Terminal and type the following:

    defaults write com.apple.dock notification-always-show-image -bool TRUE;killall Dock

    --you can copy and paste it if you want? exactly how it is
    -open itunes and play a song. Sorted! its pretty cool
    -if you still cant see it you can simply restart your mac

    -if you wish to deactivate this, again its just another simple command. ill type it below so you can just copy and paste it in to Terminal.

    -open Terminal
    -type --

    defaults delete com.apple.dock itunes-notifications
    defaults delete com.apple.dock notification-always-show-image;killall Dock

    -Enter
    All done. iTunes is back to its normal self

    after entering "emacs" be sure to press enter. i didn't really mention that too clear.
    press enter after each command.

    theres nothing that can harm you mac with these commands. there only for fun :)
