Last week I took Bella to the cinemas. While we were queuing to buy our popcorn with a side of movie tickets I spotted a geek wearking the following shirt.
I couldn’t help having a little chuckle to myself as the wearer and I exchanged knowing glances. For those of you reading that don’t get the reference, chown is a common UNIX command for changing the owner of a specified file or directory structure. The command on the T-shirt will recurse the /base directory changing all the owners to “us”.
Its a clever play on the “all your base are belong to us” line from a Japanese video game. You can read more about the history of this phenomenon over at Wikipedia.
