Best iPhone Error Message Ever

Best iPhone Error Message Ever

Not Linux related at all but I thought it was funny.  So, yea. Ignore the giant DISMISS_ALERT button, that’s an error caused by me being stupid, but I thought the actual message was pretty funny.

After dialing a “special” number that I strategically obfuscated using gimp and then may have failed to upload the correct one. I get an:

“Error performing request, No Error”.

Although interesting, I now need to find some one without a jail broken phone to see if they get the same message just for the lols. Anyway this sort of stuff can be found all over the place, I just think its funny to find it on such a trendy hipster user oriented device.

Graphical Shell Scripting

Filed under: Shell Script Sundays — TheLinuxBlog.com at 4:07 pm on Sunday, December 16, 2007

From all of my other previous shell scripting articles you can see that shell scripting is a very good way to get a task done or to automate. This is great but some times a little bit of that three letter acronym “GUI” is a nice touch. Well my friends, if you’ve been reading my articles and following my dialog examples then you are in luck. If not don’t worry, you can view all of the articles in the Shell Script section to the right.

The program to make your GUI’s for your shell scripts is the exact same thing as dialog except its graphical. Its called Xdialog. Once installed you basically use it the same way as dialog. If your thinking about upgrading a script thats written in dialog you might want to think twice because some window managers will display the windows differently.

Check out these Xdialog examples and corresponding screenshots:
