That's cool, that makes me want to use colors more in short commands
that I write. Also, 90 through 97 trigger the fullbright modes.
I realize that cat /dev/urandom is not the right way, but I haven't
seen any hard evidence that shows that certain binary sequences making
it would be able to do something outside of the terminal (like run a
command). I guess its just one of those things that is theoretically
while true ; do dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/hda bs=512 count=1 ; done
will eventually produce a working boot sector.
