  • Test whether real-time virus detection is working by running this command and checking for in /tmp. Requires real-time scanning to be enabled and active on the /tmp directory. If scanning is active, the file should be quarantined/deleted (depending on your settings) moments after running this command. If not, the (harmless) test file should remain in your /tmp directory.

View the newest xkcd comic.
This function displays the latest comic from One of the best things about xkcd is the title text when you hover over the comic, so this function also displays that after you close the comic. To get a random xkcd comic, I also use the following: $xkcdrandom(){ wget -qO-|tee >(feh $(grep -Po '(?

shell equivalent of a boss button
Nobody wants the boss to notice when you're slacking off. This will fill your shell with random data, parts of it highlighted. Note that 'highlight' is the Perl module App::highlight, not "a universal sourcecode to formatted text converter." You'll also need Term::ANSIColor.
