Curiosidades de mac, un sistema operativo inteligente


No deja de sorprenderme este s.o, que estan listo que tiene mas cosas de las que podamos saber.

Si nos vamos a la carpeta aplicaciones, utilidades y arrancamos el terminal, tecleamos como sigue:

1- Abrir el terminal. Teclear "emacs", sin las comillas, y presionar enter.

2- Presionar Esc+X para ir al prompt.

3- Teclear "doctor". Presionar enter.

Y ya estamos delante de nuestro medico... preguntenle lo que quieran pero en ingles.

Pero eso no es todo, si queremos mas informacion del señor de los anillos...
En la misma ventana del terminal escribimos esto sin las comillas
"grep LOTR /usr/share/calendar/calendar.history"

Y nos dara la secuencia de el señor de los anillos con su respectivas fechas.

Jajajaja, que mitico lo del doctor, es como el doctor abuse de hace un monton de años para Windows, voy a probarlo ahora en Linux, a ver si va con su emacs.

Que gracioso lo que dice si le comentas que quieres suicidarte:


I want to commit suicide

Do you really think you might want to commit?

If you are really suicidal, you might want to contact the Samaritans
via E-mail: or, at your option, anonymous E-mail:
. Or find a Befrienders crisis center at
https://www.befrienders.org/ . Please, continue.

Jajaja, tambien esta el doctor en Linux y da exactamente el mismo mensaje si le dices que te quieres suicidar :lol: :lol: :lol:

Lo del calendario tambien funciona en Linux, vamos, que ambas cosas deben ser curiosidades UNIXeras de toda la vida
