I'll start with a simple one
open the terminal and type CAL, and you get this month's calendar, type "CAL -Y", and you get this year, type "CAL -Y 1966" and you get a calendar from the year of my birth(or any year you want)
Anyone else have some terminal stuff to share.

Actually, this will list the contents of the current directory (The default is Home when you open terminal)

Here's one I read about back in the early days of OS X. At the prompt, type:

emacs -batch -l dunnet

and then just have fun!

ls -laF Now that is how to read a directory ;)

As for tricks... try running softwareupdate

As for the game in emacs, thanks, I shall have fun with it.

However, try this:

type emacs, press return
press escape twice (its just to make sure the meta key has been pressed) then press x, then type space doctor. and then talk to the doctor :D


Here are some other fun ones: top
banner (make a banner of what you just said, but doesn't appear that well as you aren't piping it to the printer)
a few others float out there.

The game reminds me of the few months I MUDDed... those were the days. I still prefer ones available on the web, like JediNet, but the game is lots of fun, there went all my time to work
