Thread: I miss Windows and it's crashy badness.

  1. #1

    I miss Windows and it's crashy badness.

    Hey guys, remember when windows would crash, and if you tried to move a window it would leave trails of the window on the screen? Almost like a massive feedback loop!

    Well, Linux doesn't do that and I sure miss it. So, I wrote this little script that would try to immitate that behavior in X!

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    while :; do
     echo -n "Taking shot ... "
     import -window root ~/images/screenshots/root.png
     qiv -x ~/images/screenshots/root.png
     echo "done."
    done
    What this does is very simple: It will take a screenshot of your desktop then set it as your root image.

    Unfortunately, 'import' is slow as a mofo and it's not quite like the real thing.

    Here is a screenshot of me doing it on my system:

    Keep in mind that there is only one window open in that picture.

    nice script, the next thing you need is a script that does random reboots ... :P

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    chance=$(expr $RANDOM % 100)
    
    if [ $chance -eq 66 ]
    then
     halt
    fi
    Run it out of cron every couple of minutes, with root privs

    cool .. now the only thing that we would need is the final script that does random kill -11 on the apps that are running - now nobody ever wants to run windows if you can have all the nice features under linux ;D

    I believe this is what you're looking for:

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    num=0
    for i in $(ps -U $(id -u -n) --no-headers -o pid)
    do
     list[$num]=$i
     num=$(expr $num + 1)
    done
    
    kill -s 11 ${list[$(expr $RANDOM % $num)]}

    Arghh...I can't seem to pull your website up, feztaa...this is annoying. *I think it is the network that I am on that is doing it. *Anyone else having problems?

    Never mind. I am certain that it is my network. I will wait until I get home and then I will look at the site.
