My son Benjamin is 6 years old. I started teaching him how to program. Today he 
had a brief and fun introduction into shell scripting/remote command execution:

* go to google and do a search for moo.wav
* download and save the file
* test it with aplay
* Mommy is at her computer browsing the web
* scp it to Mommy's computer
* ssh to Mommy's computer

- Are we going to tell Mommy to press Enter to hear it?
- No, we will press enter for her many, many times from here.

*  while true;do aplay MOO.WAV ;done

Benjamin did the typing.
