    Check out xkcd's (April Fools?) front end. Command line + text adventure all in one. Best geek AF thingy ever.

    So far, have figured out a couple things, trying to avoid the cheatsheet.

    Oh that is fantastic! If you write "cheat" it says "free shipping enabled" and when I typed xkcd it replied "Yes?" And it said hi back to me. How friendly!

    edit: and if you type in the f word, it says "I have a headache" :D Brilliant!

    Oh the simple things!

    :)
    Code:
    guest@xkdc:/$ man xkcd
    Oh, I'm sure you can figure it out.
    
    guest@xkdc:/$ reboot
    Must be root.
    
    guest@xkdc:/$ xyzzy
    Nothing happens.

    I don'r really know, I thought it was part of the April fool's MR joke yesterday. I tried to put a ":D" there but when it posted it came out as ":d". I even edited my post and the same thing happened again?

    But I see the ":D" worked fine for Blue above, so I'm stumped? :confused:

    "colon lowercase d" should stay as you typed it.

    "colon uppercase D" is the text representation of the Big Grin smilie :)D).

    This isn't the first time that I've seen :d It looks like someone licking their lips, if you ask me.
