In which I am a great big nerd

There’s a billboard on my commute for a company that’s hiring technical people. They’re using Unix commands in the ad to attract the people they want, so the ad says:

Want to tail -f the latest thing? Then wget http://some/company/url!

Whenever I go by I think “No, I’d want to tail -F in that case, because the latest thing always ends pretty quick and the next one arrives.”

  1. a UNIX CLI billboard?! we don’t get anything as cool as that up here … 😦
    (and I had actually never seen the -F option, so today is now a net win – I learned a new command-line tool option! yay!)
