Joe and I played World of Warcraft together for a couple of months last year and early this year, and I continued with the game, and he didn't. I've been sort of nagging him off and on to get back into it since I liked playing with him, but WoW just never really "hooked" him. The following was an email I sent to him a month or two ago that I just found a copy of and thought was worth posting.

wirehead@JOSEPH:~ $ man compel

NAME

compel - cause system to perform specified action

SYNOPSIS

compel [OPTS] [-] [ARGS]

DESCRIPTION

Passes the stated argument to system kernel and causes
execution of argument in preference to all other
processes, including other system-level processes (i.e.,
EAT, ELIMINATE, etc.). Options consist of setting an
execution priority from 1-100. When added to the execution
stack the function will echo "done" to the shell.

If this function counteracts existing system-level
policies, it requires root access.
