Dear David Fincher, Director of The Social Network,
yesterday evening I saw your great movie and I must say that I enjoyed it very much.
Besides the very interesting plot I was very happy that you have chosen KDE as Desktop environment for Marks computer (that does not prove that Mark is using KDE in real-life, of course - but as Mark is a smart guy, I would not wonder). At least you haven't followed the rest of Hollywood and gave him an Apple or made him use Windows.
I was very delighted that you did your homework and showed us the magic of wget and perl and no unrealistic Hollywood typical computer voodoo. People that did not know how to fetch a bunch of images from a website really learned something. Thank you very much for that.
But... really... was it necessary to ruin this good impression with the close up of the terminal session, where Mark had typed
> ping localhost PING localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_req=1 ttl=64 time=0.031 ms 64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_req=2 ttl=64 time=0.041 ms 64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_req=3 ttl=64 time=0.045 ms 64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_req=4 ttl=64 time=0.036 ms 64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_req=5 ttl=64 time=0.047 ms ^C --- localhost.localdomain ping statistics --- 5 packets transmitted, 5 received, 0% packet loss, time 3996ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.031/0.040/0.047/0.005 ms
I guess Mark knows that his computer is up and running, while he sits in front of it surfing Facebook.
