Talking Need some fun commands while in SSH.

I figured out my friends root password. He and I are new to Linux. I used SSH to get into his computer and kept on annoying him with the eject command. He has no idea what was going on and I had a good laugh. Just wondering, can anyone think of any good commands I could use to annoy him? We are both using Fedora 14.

When I first started in Solaris someone got into my machine as me and set up a bunch of aliases for some of the common commands I use like ls and cd.

creating aliases seems a good option to annoy someone

You could try creating text files in random locations, like on the desktop, with nano.

Theres also the old "poweroff" or "reboot".
