Terminal

Visited "OMG! Ubuntu!" today as I do everyday. I was presented by a terminal upon successfully accessing the site. My first instinct was that it was a mistake made by the server administrator as my request was redirected to "http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/bash/". I typed in "help" as hinted in the terminal window. Typical Linux commands were revealed along with strange ones like "moo" and "fortune".
The funny outputs were indicative of an April Fool's prank. The comment "Enjoyed this April fools? click a few ads!" in the page source confirmed this.
I had already caught on and proceeded to continue my fun by running "wget" and "rm *". I also read articles published on the site in text format.
Typing "logout" brings you back to the homepage.
