Siri-ites do read!
Last night we went to Lowes in search of a grill. Everyone in the suburbs owns a grill – it’s mandatory. We ran into a fellow Siri-ite while perusing the giant aisles filled with things that only people living outside of a city have room for. When we got to the register there was a problem with our order in their system. The cashier started jabbing at buttons in her frustration making the whole thing freeze. Then the amazing thing happened…she rebooted.
Imagine if you can two Siri-ites staring at the computer screens, their faces lit up like a 3 year old seeing his oversized birthday cake for the first time. The exchange went something like this.
“Look! Its PXE booting.”
“Hey, it’s loading Linux!”
“Is that Gentoo Linux?”
“Haha! It’s starting SSH!!”
“Wait, why did it start XII if it’s running a NCurses App?”
“Maybe, it’s an AS400 emulator?”
Then the Lowes logo appeared in ASCII Art to which even I got excited.
