War On Terror For Nerds

David Isenberg has a pretty funny post here regarding dealing with terrorists using the UNIX command line. I was a UNIX system administrator for years and grew up on this robust and scalable OS. Still I wasn’t positive what chown was. I was pretty sure it was change owner and turns out I was right. If you want to see the full set of commands from the Sun Ray Blog. Oh and by the way it includes translation into English.

 

$ cd Afghanistan
$ ls
bin Taliban
$ rm Taliban
rm: Taliban is a directory
$ cd Taliban
$ ls
soldiers
$ rm soldiers
$ cd ..
$ rmdir Taliban
rmdir: directory "Taliban": Directory not empty
$ cd Taliban
$ ls -a
. .. .insurgents
$ chown -R USA .*
