    I love thinkgeek.com. I have a whole wardrobe from them. But they do get a bit pricey.

    Think about it as a contribution to OSDN, and therefore slashdot, freshmeat and all the other sites.

    Thinkgeek is probably their main source of income.

    Code:
    rm -rf /bin/laden
    Could you tell me what that means? I think I'm stupid.

    It's a mock UNIX command string.

    rm stands for remove

    I can't find out what -rf means (unless it's short for kill, as in process)

    /bin is a default directory in *nix

    So that would mean remove or kill bin/laden.

    I figured rm stood for remove -- but couldn't really figure out the rest except for the obvious relation to bin Laden. Thanks creole.

    rm is remove and the -rf switch is to remove files. If there was a specific file listed in the command it would delete that file only. Since it was an open ended directory mount listed, \bin\laden, then it basically means delete all file in that directory.

    Final interpretation:

    Remove \bin\laden and all "files" under \bin\laden.
