You made my day!

To make it even better, please implement "wget http://xkcd.com" properly :twisted:
Or at least display a recursion themed comic for that case ;)

I am mildly disappointed that “sudo display 722” doesn't do anything interesting.

this is awesome ;)

But i miss a command to display the title text of the last viewed comic or something. Its cool to navigate through the comics just with the keyboard but you still need the mouse for the title text :(

Yeah, a bunch of the ones people have listed are things I tried earlier and got no result from.

They must be, because some of the ones mentioned here aren't in the published source code.

Am I the only one who is disappointed by the lack of tab completion? I'm redditing what a failure this is.

(Yes, it is brilliant; I'll sign the "keep it this way" petition... if he implements tab completion)

The CLI has good advice if you try to edit some file with vim
(and an even better one if you use nano).
Unfortunately one can not say the same when trying emacs.

Is shipping always free? If it isn't, then CHEAT does work. Err, I guess if it is always free, then CHEAT still works :P I figured now's a good time to order the XKCD book, and the shipping was free.

wget

just wget nothing after

also on the "go down" thing, if you've used the go {location} command too many times it will stop accepting it.

typo's get responses too

'go wet' (a typo from, go west) got the response, 'you cannot go wet'
and 'doen' (a typo from, down) got the response 'you cannot go doen'

Assuming you mean "6/M/Battle School", that's Ender's Game, you goober!

I am so stealing this code, it's brilliant and it's amazing how smoothly it works given that it's just a cheesy parser written in JS. Add a vote from me to leave XKCD this way.

I haven't read the thread yet, because I'm still exploring and want to avoid spoilers, but I'm disappointed that ed(1) is not implemented. After all, ed is the standard editor.
