Wie heeft er van Samaric gehoord?

Ik vond op mijn desktop een bestand .Samaric . Het is 256 bytes groot, van 16-9-2002 21:12:59 en met BBedit lees ik dit:

Niet echt interessant.

Een zoektochtje op google levert een heleboel geneuzel over boedhisme op en welgeteld 1 relevante link. Maar daar word ik ook niets wijzer van want nogal cryptisch:

Ah, but you missed a great quote more or less about this too:

"Unix teaches us about the transitory nature of all things, thus
ridding us of samsaric attachments and hastening enlightenment. For
instance, while trying to make sense of an X initialization script
someone had given me, I came across a line that looked like an
ordinary unix shell command with the term “exec” prefaced to it.
Curious as to what exec might do, I typed “exec ls” to a shell window.
It listed a directory, then proceeded to kill the shell and every
other window I had, leaving the screen almost totally black with a
tiny white inactive cursor hanging at the bottom to remind me that
nothing is absolute and all things partake of their opposite.

“In the past I might have gotten upset or angry at such an occurrence.
That was before I found enlightenment through Unix. Now, I no longer
have attachments to my processes. Both processes and the disappearance
of processes are illusory. The world is unix, unix is the world,
labor ceaselessly for the salvation of all sentient beings.”
-Michael Travers

Procrastinating, as usual,

Wie kan mij vertellen wat .Samsaric voor een bestand is, waar het toe dient en waar het vandaan komt?

Een virus? :wink: Nee, grapje, geen flauw idee, nooit van gehoord, maar hoe kom je er aan, zal toch niet zomaar op je desktop belanden... :oops:
