Reading D'Arcy Norman's feed and had to check this post for more info leading me to this site, xkcd full of strange but compelling comics. I have to admit I didn't understand the one that D'Arcy displayed on his blog (maybe because I'm Australian or not as bright as I'd like to think) but maybe some one will pop by and explain it for me. I did get this one however.
no problem! The comic I linked to was a reference to the unix “sudo” command, which executes the next command as root so you can force the system to do things you’re not normally supposed to be able to make it do. Like making a sandwich? 😉
