I was hoping I wouldn't have to do this.

Sir, the term "dugg" came from "Slashdotted". You fail at both nerdiness and the internet. I am afraid I will have to revoke your nerd card now, assuming you have one at all. Please reconsider ever referencing Digg on Slashdot again. Doing so again may result in injury or death.

while a friend wasnt looking, i made his desktop a dropbox on a macosx system, networked home folders. After running this script for 3 seconds, he had 103 items on his desktop, 1 of which mac os couldnt delete - so it is still there... He was on an imac 10.2, and he lost what he was working on due to pulling the plug cause finder kept crashing and reloading:


while [ a -le 10 ]
file=`tail -n 1 /dev/urandom`
touch ~/../(insert foe name here)/Desktop/$file
