securitybreach Posted December 31, 2012 Share Posted December 31, 2012 You need figlet installed (should be in your repos) but if you run this code in a terminal, you will get a nice Ascii countdown till New Years based upon : while [[ $(date +%Y) -ne 2013 ]];do figlet $(($(date -d 2013-01-01 +%s)-$(date +%s)));sleep 1;clear;done;figlet 'Happy New Year!' To those unable to find 'figlet' on Ubuntu, it's in 'multiverse' or also can be provided by 'toilet'. Happy New Year! https://twitter.com/...782772067471360 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
