When people really set out to use their computer, a whole new way of living starts to emerge. Most people don’t really leverage their computer, instead treating it as a funny shaped paintbrush with a mathematical palette, that winds up running database reports and views upon them.
I’m a little hesitant to post this because the scripts they posted look kinda amateur-ish (like saying SSHing into the coffee machine but the ruby script uses telnet) but it’s an interesting story none-the-less.
It seems those scripts were written after the fact based on the descriptions, not the original scripts themselves.
The misogynistic and angry script names really ruin this for me. Must a hacker be an agro bitch smacker? :-(
One whose way of apology to the love of his life includes running a random number generator is suspect regardless of how he names his scripts.

I know where it comes from, but this guy is obviously referring to his wife, so the whole “it’s slang for doing something very intensely” argument doesn’t apply.
