Having fun with SSH – Mac OS X Hints

Having fun on April 1st with SSH – Mac OS X Hints.

Absolutely nasty:

sudo kill [program id learned from top] 

Note: using ’sudo open‘ over ssh does not give the user super-user privileges for the opened application.

sudo halt
sudo reboot
sudo osascript -e 'tell app "[name of an open program]" to quit'

Power:

sudo osascript -e 'tell app "Finder" to sleep'
sudo osascript -e 'tell app "Finder" to shut down'

General:

sudo open /Applications/iChat.app
sudo osascript -e "set volume 0"
sudo osascript -e "beep"
sudo osascript -e 'display dialog "Did you know that you are annoying?" 
  buttons "Yes" with icon note'
sudo osascript -e 'tell app "Finder" to quit'
sudo open [path to an application]

Speech:

sudo osascript -e 'say "[whatever]" using "Zarvox"'
sudo osascript -e 'say "Dum dum dum dum dum dum dum he he he ho ho ho fa 
  lah lah lah lah lah lah fa lah full hoo hoo hoo" using "Cellos"'

iTunes Control:

sudo open /Applications/iTunes.app; sudo osascript -e 'say "Play some music.
  Go on.  I dare you." using "Zarvox"'
sudo osascript -e 'tell app "iTunes" to stop' -e 'say "Please stop playing
  your annoying music" using "Zarvox"'
sudo osascript -e 'tell app "iTunes" to next track' -e 'say "I did not like
  that song very much" using "Zarvox"'
sudo osascript -e 'tell app "iTunes" to fast forward' -e 'say "This song is 
  boring" using "Zarvox"'
sudo osascript -e 'tell app "iTunes" to quit'

Have fun, but not too much fun!
