Day 14 of #24DaysofLinux

The Linux terminal is no one-trick pony

Did someone say they wanted a pony?

Jason even uses podman to demo this one!

 Head to the arcade in your Linux terminal with this Pac-Man clone

Another one that consumed too much of my youth. I think I even had a cartridge for the TRS80.

Schedule a visit with the Emacs psychiatrist

A chatbot tool inside of Emacs provides a glimpse of AI from the 60's

For a little fun in Vim, find some Easter Eggs in the help and some ex mode commands:
:help 42
:help holy-grail
:help!
:Ni!

Find more in the Best Vim Tips in the Vim Tips Wiki.

Oh, snake, tetris, and matrix are all also available inside of Vim with some vim-script plugins if you are really daring. Personally, I think I will stick to the containerized versions mentioned earlier in this series.

Take a swim at your Linux terminal with asciiquarium

Moving back to colorful critters, this one is a bit fishy.

Hang out the gone fishing sign and take a look.

Use your Linux terminal to celebrate a banner year

Big banners. Possibly useful for authorized use messages but provided here to share your choice of holiday greetings. Happy Gnu Year!

Now, I wonder if I can find a working dot matrix printer to make some family room banners ...

Solve a puzzle at the Linux command line with nudoku

Training your brain with logic puzzles improves troubleshooting and root cause analysis skills.
Great troubleshooting and root cause analysis skills make a great system administrator (and RHCP).

So nudoku is an on-the-job required utility?
Well, maybe you should spend the time on RH342 instead. Smiley Happy

Day 20 of #24DaysofLinux

Let your Linux terminal speak its mind

As much fun as this can be as a toy, programs like espeak are essential to helping those with challenges communicate with the world. Screen readers share the world wide web with those that cannot see, voice boxes allow brilliant minds like Stephen Hawking to share their ideas.
Yet, there is more to accessible code than just the tools and utilities. How a web site is deigned in terms of colors, font types and sizes, and alternate tags for images is also important if you want to share your message with everyone. Investment in Open Source tools and User Interfaces (UI) that improve the openness and accessibility for all is greatly needed.

Listen to the radio at the Linux terminal

I use a lot of GUI front ends, some past ones even had dependencies on MPlayer, but I had forgotten how robust it is just from the command line. I can ssh to my media server and start a holiday play list. No X forwarding required.

PS As an extra bonus. opensource.com also features an article today to Set the holiday mood with your Raspberry Pi

Watch YouTube videos at the Linux terminal

Moving from audio to video. Yes, we are still talking about command line fun!

The Linux command line can fetch fun from afar

As we near the end of the journey, enjoy a bit of remote fun from the command line. This article includes viewing Star Wars (previously commented on in this discussion) and a weather app that I like better than the IRC bot I have been using. Also some really nifty dedicated clients for reading discussion boards from the comfort of the command line.
