Replacing people with their alternate reality counterparts, eh ?
Either it’s an override which means they’ll have to forcefolly remember their past to overcome this predicament and turn the tide, OR it’s a place switch meaning our heroes will be in the alternate reality now, looking for a way out.
Or could be something else entirely, no idea.
Probably more along the lines of “sudo mv /alt/person1 /universe/person1”
The old “Keep old file or overwrite” annoyance for those of you who don’t command line – only without the “keep old file or” bit. Shells are quite unforgiving.
Oh, there’s also my personal favorite – “sudo rm -r /” <- do NOT try that.
End of Line
OK, that wasn’t DOS. I’m guessing UNIX? It’s been WAY too long since college for me, and I don’t remember the command “sudo” at all.
Unix indeed. Forget the “sudo” part, it’s just for a normal user to get temporarilly root access levels : being authorized to do anything.
mv : move. Works same way as DOS.
rm : del. The -r option allows the command to delete directories, and on unix there’s only one root directory : /, where on dos and windows there’s one for each disk letter : \.
That said, DarthNSupreme could have added the -f option to force the delete (otherwise, can be refused) and send the output to the void so it shows nothing.
“sudo rm -rf / > /dev/nul” ==> now, you killed your computer yourself, you can format and reinstall everything…
Backups, people! Backups!
reduced to an alcoholic drinking poor Montaigne ‘rotgut’. I’m not sure who ended up worse
Heh, and chaos ensues… and what gorgeous chaos indeed!
Ok, I’m wondering here… I know what rotgut means in englisch, but it could also be german… rot = red, gut = good. redgood. Is that intentional or coincidencde?
It would have been cool but it’s just coincidence. I know no German. Or maybe it’s just a happy accident. 😉
I think, the term rotgut is intented. It’s used for very very very bad quality alcoholic beverage. Like Jim Beam or authentic russian self destilled vodka, or worse.
Hey, now, Jim Beam is not rotgut! When I think rotgut, I think MD20/20 or Dark Eyes or something.
Funny the “rotgut” brand features Pablo’s gravestone head. I wonder how that came from in the alternate universe…
*Glances at Tony’s avatar.*
Come to think of it, I should have put my avatar as the logo on the bottle.
Hm, so assuming Bennet just got the whammy off-panel considering he is holding his head just like Herrik was. And that’s all the non-stoners of the group taken out. Hopefully it takes longer to overwrite the stoners.
