I've just found out that Unix has a useful little command called yes. It's perfect for when a pesky program keeps asking you for confirmation: "do you want to delete this file? (yes) do you want to delete this directory? (yes)" - simply call the program using yes and it will answer yes to all these questions for you automatically, therefore representing technology’s greatest triumph to date over both itself and plain common sense. (to coin a phrase)
