Fun (or weird) aliases to configure

After half an hour of randomly re-reading xkcd strips, I thought I’d start a meme: Fun or weird aliases for commands.
Kick start, aliases for “sudo”:

simonsays apt-get install python2.5
please apt-get install python2.5
youdo apt-get install python2.5

  1. Brilliant! I want to do this for real. 🙂


  2. Now I know what I am doing on the weekend, thanks


  3. Personally I like using ‘fucking’ as an alias for sudo.

    $ rm foo
    rm: cannot remove `asdf’: Permission denied
    $ fucking rm foo

    Makes it feel like the machine will carry out an order it first refused to do if only you tell it angrily enough 🙂


  4. I like the ‘please’ one, but I’m thinking of aliasing it to ‘sudo aptitude’:

    $ please install python2.5
    $ please update
    $ please upgrade
