Share your look-busy scripts

I'm talking about some script, or command(s) which output impressive garbage to the screen. For instance, `tree / | od` or `ping google.ca | xxd` might be enough to dazzle an executive, but to really ensnare a fellow dev, you need to get a bit more complex.

So let's see those scripts! From stupid simple, to application-level complex, I wanna see 'em all! :D

    I'll start. [hackerman](https://github.com/nullportal/...) python script. :p

    I went a bit overboard, maybe. It basically just queries to Github API and writes out OSS that it finds there, to the terminal, as if you wrote it.

    There are arguments for language, queryString, typing speed... Probably some others. It's not amazing, but it does the thing it set out to.

    <script type="application/javascript">

    var col = c.width/size;

    for(var x=0;x<col;x++){
    dwn[x]=1;

    var text = eff[Math.floor(Math.random()*eff.length)];
    screen.fillText(text,i*size,dwn[i]*size);
    if(dwn[i]*size>c.height && Math.random() >0.9)
    dwn[i]=0;
    dwn[i]++;
    }
    }
    setInterval(draw,27);</script></html>
