Amusing myself - Cowsay

I was messing around with programs you can run straight from the terminal in linux and found a program called cowsay.

It's a goofy little entirely useless program that puts in ascii art whatever you tell the cowsay command to do.

For instance: "cowsay Welcome to Dennys Homeworld" (minus the quotes) produced this:

(I added the apostrophe afterwards...)

Well atleast it gave me something to write about. There are actually quite a lot of apps for terminal alone, and if you dont mind getting out of gui for a while it's kind of fun to mess around with.

Some are very beneficial like lynx which doesnt open any images and is strictly text, which can protect you from virus attacks and the like.
