Here are two one-liners to have fun with. The first one takes a block of text you input it and displays it one character at a time, creating the impression that someone else is typing:
echo “I have a troll in my Linux box that is doing all the work for me” | pv -qL 10
The second one creates a poor, Matrix-like effect in your Teminal:
tr -c “[:digit:]” ” ” < /dev/urandom | dd cbs=$COLUMNS conv=unblock | GREP_COLOR=”1;32″ grep –color “[^ ]”
the second command (the matrix-like) doesn’t work…
@ag replace ” with ” and all will work !
