Something funny I read from Facepunch.com, a different forum I visit frequently.
Oh Apple you.
finger is a unix command used to check if a user is online
I know, I wikipedia'd it. Though I think they could have come up with a better name for it. Look at ping. That's a relatively innocent name.
Also, I think the wording Apple chose for instructions is quite interesting if you are not in the right frame of mind.
Forty years ago when the original Finger program was written, I don't think the connotation was as universally recognized as it is now. If I recall, it was more common to refer to fingering someone as identifying them, usually in the context of some nefarious activity.
Resistance is ... y'know.
I'll just remember it as that.
Separate names with a comma.
