Subject: Hi.    ............ Yep, that's how I start a conversation. Deal with it.


To whoever reads this: ... yeah, that's about the extent of my knowledge. Someone who runs attrition? 
I'm guessing so.
Heya, I was just surfing the net a bit, bored out of my mind and I thought of you guy's site (You 
don't want to know how I came up with the idea... think "Andy McNab" or "Boy Soldier"  the book...) 
and decided to have a look.It's cool. (This is the bit where you get all warm and fuzzy because you 
just got called cool, you know, it means that you are one with the younger generation. Go team.) I'm 
no computer whiz, but I like to play around a bit and I was interested in the tutorials done by Unix
Geeks. Thought it would be good to get some more in-depth knowledge of what I am actually using/doing 
on my computer.The only thing is, is that my main computer is a Mac     : )Now, I'm not sure if I can 
follow what the tutorials are doing using a mac interface, can you enlighten me on the intricacies of 
computer science? Or at the very least, tell me I'm stupid because the coding (and I'm talking blind 
here, got no idea what I'm saying) is much the same between the Mac/PC's or that the tutorials are not 
even based upon the actual computer, but the network it's on... or something... I don't know, that's 
why I'm asking.But yeah, where does one start? (preferably on a mac). How do you learn to program 
software or set up networks, and just about everything else. I know that is a bit general, but I'm not 
sure where to start.Oh, and If you're the type that has a personal Vendetta against the Macintosh 
computer, get over it. Hahaha, seriously though, don't  activate some sort of self destruct on my 
computer, or blow up my house just because I'm a mac fan. (And we all know that Mac's are cooler, just 
by carrying one around your social status is boosted to the equivalent of a near-Jesus level. Well, 
after he was crucified anyway.)  Anyway, Thanks for reading; well, if you did read it. If you didn't, 
you'll probably burn in hell -But hey! you knew that anyway XD.

1) Boot Mac
2) Find 'Terminal' under Applications -> Utilities
3) Run 'Terminal'
4) Do fun things
5) The end

Wow.. I'm stunned. By your amazing ability to give roughly the same amount of information as a retarded ninja.. 
who can't speak.Ok then, can I do the tutorials shown using terminal? I'm guessing that is the equivalent to 
command prompt. duh. So far, I think you're a rather blunt person who has better stuff to do than answer
rookie's emails, so thanks. (This always works. Butter someone up and the helpfulness will flow like a river 
of.... water.)

Oh yeah, in section 4) "do fun things" could you give me a few examples/ideas?
cheers.
ATG

A retarded ninja is still a ninja.

When it comes to how one can "do fun things", this retarded ninja (who is still a motherfucking NINJA, and don't 
you forget it) recommends spoofing mail to your friends made to look like a marriage proposal from Lindsay Lohan. 
No cheating with pre-made software and tools...do it all from the terminal command line. Don't know how? Play 
with DNS MX records and SMTP protocol documents until you figure it out. Do that, young grasshopper, and you may 
someday earn your own Black Wheelchair.

Subject: I thank you, Oh retarded Ninja- (let me know if I should leave out the 'retarded')


As you say, I will do. Your great teaching will become my very essence, my very soul will become a 
whirling, winding and ...whirling...  Image of swirly, swishy, fugly green text. Like the matrix, 
except cooler. Thanks for replying to my mails before- I'll try not to bother you too much in the 
future. Unless I either need more words of wisdom, or just to bandy about. hah.I'll work on the 
marriage proposal sometime, atm I'm trying to get my fucking boot camp to work. Sending you thanks 
via the command line- ATG
