    No, the little you can see is enough reason for it to be funny.

    Where are the IT (eye tee) guys out there?

    Now I get it - The screen was actually that IBM system *playing* Jeopardy, not the answer...

    That *is* very funny...

    Couldn't have:

    $ what is newfs /dev/hda1
    is: No such file or directory


    and the people's answers are wrong, fsck doesn't format, it checks the filesystem (thus the shorthand for filesystem check as the command)

    I guess it might be funnier if it had a chance of working. Dunno.

    Yeah, it did have a chance to. I was just wondering what I'd missed.
