apt-get what?

If you are like me, when you need to use a program in your console, the first thing is to run “bla –help”.

Well..

Having a Ubuntu box, typed apt-get --help. That’s what I saw, here shortened:

ursula@ursula-laptop:~$ apt-get --help
apt 0.7.9ubuntu17 for i386 compiled on Apr 22 2008 15:19:47
Usage: apt-get [options] command
apt-get [options] install|remove pkg1 [pkg2 ...]
apt-get [options] source pkg1 [pkg2 ...]
...
...
This APT has Super Cow Powers.

This APT has Super Cow Powers? Hm… Let’s try something that a cow would do, like mooing:

ursula@ursula-laptop:~$ apt-get moo
.........(__)
.........(oo)
..../------\/
../.|....||
.*../\---/\
....~~...~~
...."Have you mooed today?"...

:)

Now, let’s see what aptitude says:

ursula@ursula-laptop:~$ aptitude --help
aptitude 0.4.9
Usage: aptitude [-S fname] [-u|-i]
aptitude [options]
...
...
This aptitude does not have Super Cow Powers.

Does not have? So it doesn’t feel like mooing… Let’s see:

ursula@ursula-laptop:~$ aptitude moo
There are no Easter Eggs in this program.

Uuhh… It doesn’t want to play! Please aptitude, be more verbose about it!


ursula@ursula-laptop:~$ aptitude -v moo
There really are no Easter Eggs in this program.

hauhauha.. Let’s push harder! :)

ursula@ursula-laptop:~$ aptitude -vv moo
Didn't I already tell you that there are no Easter Eggs in this program?
ursula@ursula-laptop:~$ aptitude -vvv moo
Stop it!
ursula@ursula-laptop:~$ aptitude -vvvv moo
Okay, okay, if I give you an Easter Egg, will you go away?
ursula@ursula-laptop:~$ aptitude -vvvvv moo
All right, you win.

What is it? It's an elephant being eaten by a snake, of course.

Cool! :D

Infamous

Blogging it because I was asked to:

(01:13:54 AM) Ursula: deixa dar pull
(01:38:38 AM) Ursula: piada infame
(01:38:44 AM) Ricardo: fale
(01:38:47 AM) Ursula: melô do git: push me pull me
(01:39:07 AM) Ricardo: huahuahuahua
(01:39:12 AM) Ricardo: boa

hahaha :)

For those who didn’t get it: Push me, Pull me is a Pearl Jam song, from the fifth album of the band, Yield.

I had a false belief
I thought I came here to stay
We’re all just visiting
All just breaking like waves
The oceans made me, but who came up with me?
Push me, pull me, push me, or pull me out {2X}

So if there were no angels, would there be no sin?
You better stop me before I begin
But let me say: if I behave, can you arrange a spacious hole in the ground
Somewhere nice, make it nice
Where the land meets my tide
Push me, pull me, push me, or pull me out {4X}

Like a cloud dropping rain
I’m discarding all thought
I’ll dry up, leaving puddles on the ground
I’m like an opening band for the sun
Push me, pull me {6X}
I’ve had enough, said enough, felt enough, I’m fine
